The Ripple Effect
Diseases from dirty water kill millions of people each year. Clean water prevents water-borne diseases and helps communities have better sanitation.
Clean water helps keep children in school, especially young girls who are often responsible for collecting water. More time spent in the classroom means a brighter future for boys and girls.
Water keeps livestock and crops thriving which in turn increases food security and preserves livelihoods, especially for rural and pastoralist communities.
Savings and surplus from water sales translates to income generation. These added revenue streams, give communities flexibility in their budget and allows them to cover school fees, school supplies and other basic needs for their members.
Watch how access to clean water transformed a community and
Agrippina's life forever.
