There are ONE BILLION people – about one in eight people on Earth – who lack access to clean water. More than twice that many, 2.5 billion people, live without basic sanitation. This is a devastating issue that leads to rampant and totally preventable waterborne disease, taking the lives of 3.5 million every year and killing a child every 20 seconds.
H2O for Life partners schools, youth groups, businesses, faith organizations, clubs and individuals with schools in developing nations in need of water, sanitation and hygiene education. (WASH in Schools)
Donor partners learn of the global water crisis through service-learning, outreach and other educational avenues while raising funds to sponsor a WASH project at their recipient partner school. Students and adults learn that they can make a difference in the lives of others by becoming energized global citizens and activists for change.
