Benefits of Ending Water Poverty

Saving children stabilizes the global population. Watch this video to learn why.

For every $1 invested in water and sanitation, there is an economic return of between $3 - $34 (WHO).

Half of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water related diseases – these beds can be freed up by decreasing water poverty in the world (UN).

In Africa and Asia women and children spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water. This time can be saved and used for work increasing productivity within their community.

Children can spend more time in education and improving their chances of a brighter future due to not wasting time on water collection.

Clean water lays the foundation of a brighter future and creates a happier world for everyone.
