water is freedom

 

WHY

In off-grid communities, women and children often bear the primary responsibility for water collection. In some regions this accounts for up to 6 hours every day, and it’s estimated that globally they spend 200 million hours every single day simply collecting water for themselves and their families.

THE WATER PROBLEM

In off-grid communities, women and children often bear the primary responsibility for water collection. In some regions this accounts for up to 6 hours every day, and it’s estimated that globally they spend 200 million hours every single day simply collecting water for themselves and their families.
Time lost due to walking and waiting for water is having a ripple effect on women lives. Spending hundreds of hours annually that they could instead devote to more valuable pursuits such as strengthening families and communities, earning a living and attending school.

LOST TIME

The time lost is holding women back from having equal opportunities and from reaching their potential. Women earning an income are shown to reinvest up to 90% of their income back into their families, improving their family’s health and nutrition. Ensuring that their children get a good education.
