Summary

The Gamechanger Bucket is a kit including a soccer ball and a water filter, providing clean water for 100 people for at least 5 years and stopping the spread of cholera and other water-borne diseases.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Access to clean water and access to sport are in short supply in too many communities around the world. 1 Billion people currently do not have access to clean water and roughly 50% of the patients in the hospitals in developing communities are there due to water-borne diseases. Everybody is affected and none are more vulnerable than the children as this water and sanitation crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns. (source 2006 UN Human Development Report)

How will this project solve this problem?

The Gamechanger Bucket is a health and happiness kit that provides access to clean water and sport in a portable and durable 5-gallon bucket. The kit contains a water filter (7 log) that provides clean water for 100 people for more than 5 years, as well as a Nike soccer ball.

Potential Long Term Impact

As well as working to eradicate Cholera and other water-borne diseases, the long-term effects on the beneficiaries are providing health (clean water) and happiness (soccer) for themselves, their family and their community for the next 5 years.
