THE GLOBAL WATER CRISIS
Water is a fundamental human need and a driver for sustainable growth, yet water scarcity affects more than 40% of the global population, and is projected to rise. 844 million people in the world live without access to clean water. That’s nearly 1 in 9 people worldwide.Despite there being sufficient fresh water on our planet, millions of people who reside in tough and dry-land conditions are forced to live without it. The majority of those people live in isolated rural areas and spend hours walking to collect and transport water for their families every day. That water is often unclean and contaminated, leaving people sick with waterborne diseases such as Diarrhea, Cholera and Typhoid.
CLEAN WATER CHANGES EVERYTHING. WATER CONNECTS EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE
Access to safe water and sanitation turns time spent into time saved, it allows communities more time to pursue education and work opportunities, and it also help improve their health and break the cycle of poverty.
