1 in every 5 children
lack access to clean drinking water.
More than 1.42 billion people live in areas with high or extremely high water vulnerability worldwide, including 450 million children. They do not have sufficient water to meet their daily needs.
Women and girls spend 200
million hours collecting water -
6 hours each, every day.
Women and girls are mostly responsible for collecting water as part of their domestic duties. When the time spent on this duty is added up, however, it frequently results in girls missing school and women missing out on opportunities to earn a respectable living.
Every 2 minutes
a child dies from a water-related disease.
Water scarcity affects almost 700 million people in 43 countries worldwide. By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in nations or regions where water is in short supply, and two-thirds of the world's population could be living in water-stressed areas.
Women and girls reclaim their lives when a community has access to clean water. They start enterprises, make improvements to their homes, and take control of their own destiny.
Access to safe water improves health and aids in the prevention of infectious disease spread. It also decreases the risk of physical harm from lifting and carrying huge volumes of water on a regular basis.
School attendance has been observed to increase when time spent gathering water is reduced, particularly for girls. Access to potable water allows children to attend school and have a bright future.
Access to clean water allows communities to spend more time growing food, earning an income, and attending school, all of which help to alleviate poverty. Time is money.
The water crisis is devastating but solvable.
