WHO IS CHARITY: WATER.

charity: water is a non profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations. We give 100% of the money raised to direct project costs, funding sustainable clean water solutions in areas of greatest need. Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years.

WHY CLEAN WATER FOR A SCHOOL.

Right now, approximately 1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's one in six of us. Each well built in Ethiopia serves approximately 500 people with clean water access.

Clean water gives children the opportunity to attend school and get an education. With education, communities are able to raise up strong leaders, making it possible to break the cycle of poverty and allowing future generations to improve their quality of life. Clean water offers kids improved health, a better quality of life and hope for a bright future.

  • TIME // Many children spend all day helping their parents fetch water instead of going to school.

  • GIRLS // Lack of latrines and water to wash with causes girls to drop out of school when they begin puberty.

  • DISEASE // Dirty water causes diseases like diarrhea which can lead to dehydration and death.
