Our We Club was shocked to learn that many children, particularly girls, spend an average of 6 hours walking for water each day. That is the equivalent of a school day! They are missing out on the chance to go to school because they have to collect water for their families. The water that they are collecting is often contaminated with life-threatening diseases.
Globally 844 million people lack access to clean water. In Canada 20,000 First Nations people living on reserves have no access to running water or sewage.
We are the generation who can change this!
