Access to clean water can mean the difference between life and death. Since 1990, 2.6 billion people have gained access to improved drinking water sources, but there is still work to be done to improve the livelihood of over 800 million people living without access to safe drinking water. In developing communities, women and girls have the primary responsibility of collecting water from distant sources. This means they often miss out on school and income-generating activities at home while hauling water for themselves and their families. With access to clean water, families are able to have their girls attend school, watch their crops flourish at home and improve their personal health. Children are especially at risk for water-related diseases, and with better access to clean water school attendance rates increase—expanding the opportunities in children’s lives and improving the overall health of their family, too. On April 27th, the Coronation WE group will be participating in a 5 km walk through our community to bring awareness to this cause. We are collecting pledges from family and friends to help raise money for sustainable water projects in WE villages. For every $25 raised, we provide one person with access to clean water for life! The Coronation WE group thanks you for your support.
