What is the Global Water Crisis?
Today, 1 in 8 people around the world lack access to safe drinking water. Four million people die each year from preventable water-related diseases, and 90% of those deaths are children under five. In northern Ghana, half of the 1.8 million residents lack access to improved sources of drinking water. Due largely to this lack of access to safe water, 20% of children under five in northern Ghana are suffering from diarrheal disease.
What are we doing about it?
Community Water Solutions (CWS) is a not-for-profit social enterprise that partners with rural communities in developing countries to establish sustainable water treatment businesses. These businesses are owned and operated by the communities that they serve, and use simple, affordable technologies to enable the treatment, distribution and storage of clean, safe drinking water. The maintenance and operation of these water treatment businesses is funded by revenue from the sale of drinking water, while the capital necessary to establish them is donated by CWS.
