Our WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) programs keep families healthy by giving them access to: safe drinking water, adequate sanitation facilities (washrooms, hand wash stations) and hygiene education for men, women, and children.
We work with vulnerable communities to provide them with comprehensive solutions. We make use of the latest technologies to bring water to areas that need it most. Women are disproportionately affected by water scarcity. Women often spend a significant portion of the day fetching water. The water sources are usually unsafe, apart from being very far. Around the world, women and children spend an estimated 140 Million hours collecting water every day.
Give water, give life
No matter how small the amount, contribute to a well.
Build a well, one drop at a time.
