FREE THE CHILDREN wrote -Free The Children says: Access to clean water is a significant barrier to education.
Contaminated drinking water is one of the major causes of health problems for people in developing countries and the leading cause of death in children. It is also traditionally the job of young girls to collect water from the nearest river each day, which can often result in hours and hours of walking with a heavy load, forcing them to miss school.
Sign up for the clean water campaign and start raising $5000 to build a clean water project in any of Free The Children’s Adopt a Village countries. You aren’t just helping build a new water project—you’re also raising awareness about the importance of clean water.
