You Can Give Kids in India Clean Water

by Splash

Summary

Nowhere in the world is there more explosive urban growth than in India. The unrelenting vision of Splash is to secure clean water in 2,000 schools (500,000 kids) and 1,000 child-serving institutions- orphanages, hospitals, and shelters (250,000 kids) in Kolkata. Thanks to the early success of this campaign, we have raised our goal from $10,000 to $50,000 so we can help five times as many children get clean water now! All thanks to incredible people like you!

Challenge

In Kolkata, water is available. However, it is typically contaminated with high levels of E. coli and other disease-causing pathogens. Children are disproportionally affected by water-borne diseases, but all child deaths caused by water-related illness are preventable. There IS a solution.

Solution

Splash believes that all children should have clean water and access to life-changing health and hygiene education. Our goal is to provide quality water filtration for every public school, orphanage, children's hospital and shelter in Kolkata. Essential to Splash's strategic focus in Kolkata is this: It is one of the few, large cities where success can catalyze replication in other large cities country wide. This is why we are centered in Kolkata; intent on proving scale in 3,000 sites.

Long-Term Impact

Your support will: reduce illness and days of school missed; improve health and, thereby, greatly increase each child's chance to fulfill his or her maximum potential; impact the entire community when children take clean water and healthy behaviors home and; in many cases, give the larger community access to our free, clean water.
