Challenge

Right now, 663 million people on the planet don't have access to clean and safe drinking water. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

Solution

When you take a good look at all the challenges facing the global poor, one thing stands out. There's one basic human need that, when met, sparks prosperity and productivity faster than any other single fix: access to clean, safe water. Just $30 can bring clean and safe drinking water to one person in need and 100% of donations received by charity: water directly fund sustainable water projects in areas of greatest need.

Long-Term Impact

Clean water can prevent unnecessary deaths, save time, and improve health. It enables people to be energetic members of society and to escape the cycle of poverty. Safe water projects nearby allow women more time to work and take care of their families, and kids can attend school instead of spending their mornings walking for water.
