Water Project

748 million people – roughly one in ten of the world’s population – have no choice but to get water from wherever they can, whether it’s a dirty pond or an expensive water vendor.

 

Why is this happening?

Without access to safe water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning, people are more likely to suffer from water-related diseases. These can be fatal, killing over 1,400 children a day. The time and energy required to fetch water, together with the negative health impacts of using dirty water, also has a huge impact on people’s ability to work or get an education. In the countries where we work, poor communities often cannot access sufficient quantities of safe water locally, due to poor infrastructure and bad management of services. This can be down to a lack of skills, investment or political will to prioritize the right to water.
