EVENT: SUMMIT ON THE SUMMIT
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.
WASH Advocates is a nonprofit advocacy initiative in Washington DC entirely dedicated to helping solve the global safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) challenge. Their mission is to increase awareness of the global WASH challenge and solutions, and to increase the amount and effectiveness of resources devoted to those solutions throughout the developing world.
Are you up for the challenge? Start your mission at SUMMIT ON THE SUMMIT and start your own fundraiser here. With your help, WASH can...
-Help provide more safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene more sustainably to communities throughout the developing world. This entails increasing awareness of the WASH challenge and solutions, and most importantly converting that heightened awareness into financial, technical, and human resources flowing to the sector.
-Catalyze stronger, leveraged partnerships between foundations, corporations, civic/faith groups, implementing nonprofits, schools and universities, the United States Government, and others.
-Increase WASH advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill and within the U.S. Administration, notably the Department of State and USAID.
-Catalyze and support the WASH advocacy efforts of indigenous civil society networks and leaders in developing countries.
-Encourage the U.S. and global media to more effectively cover WASH challenges and solutions.
