1.8 billion people around the world don't have access to safe water and 2.4 billion lack access to adequate sanitation. Women and children spend more than 4 hours walking for water each day, and more than 840,000 people die each year from water-related diseases.
We believe that every human being deserves access to safe water and sanitation, and we exist to create that reality in our lifetime.
Water For People is an international non-profit working across 9 countries to bring safe water and sanitation to 4 million people. For us, it isn't just about building wells, installing toilets, and setting up pumps, we're looking to create long-lasting water and sanitation infrastructure by talking to local community members, governments, and business owners, to find out how they live and what they need to feel healthy, safe, empowered, and successful. We're designing solutions based off of long-term needs and long lives. We don't want to be around forever, but we want these systems and services to last for generations to come.
But we can't do it alone—we need your help.
Can you help us to fundraise?
