In many developing countries, the inability to access clean water is a profound problem effecting billions of people. In addition to lack of clean water, nearly 950 million people don’t have access to a flushing toilet or latrine. All of these issues can cause water­borne illness, and even death. Together, we can help people get access to improved water and sanitation through improvements such as wells, filtration systems, latrines, and sanitation education.


Why Water?

The ODW Water Fund brings awareness to the lack of clean water and sanitation around the world and fights to fix this problem. 663 million people around the world lack access to clean water, and approximately 1,000 children die every day from water related diseases.


What is ODW Doing?

We’ve funded 15 water projects giving access to clean water and improved sanitation facilities. ODW and our partners, work with locals to ensure ownership and sustainability. Join us and make a real impact!
