Why water is a women's issue

Women know exactly how important water is. They're largely responsible for finding this essential resource for their families to survive - for drinking, cooking, health and hygiene.

In Sub-Saharan Africa alone, women and girls spend 40 billion hours a year collecting water. This colossal burden restricts women from pursuing income-generating activities and girls from getting an education.

When women lead, we can solve the water crisis

Women are on the frontlines of solving the water crisis. When women are equal partners in implementing water solutions, the projects are established with women and girls in mind - helping girls get an education, women-led businesses thrive, and entire communities flourish.

"We used to walk for more than four miles in search of not so clean water, but now I have clean water just a few steps from my home. It has helped us have good hygiene and helped our kids spend more time in the classroom.”

Empower a woman, empower a nation

Women are key players in sustaining families, building community resilience and responding to the global water crisis. Women tend to make decisions for the utilizations of core resources in the interests of our families, our communities and our children.

"Women are everywhere. In the marketplace, in schools, even in the villages.

If I have a certain capability to do something, I will go and teach another. You see, women interact easily, so the lessons I have are very easy to transfer to someone else.
When we empower women, we empower the community and even the nation. Because we start at home, then to the neighbors - the cycle rotates until we find we have empowered a lot of people.”
