To 784 million people on Earth, a glass of clean water is a dream.

To make that dream a reality, we’re on a mission: Mission 2030 to achieve UN Target 6.1, providing access to clean drinking water to every community. And it begins with adding 1,000,000 voices to our cause.

This week's goal: 40000. 31535 already signed.

The current approach doesn’t work

Broken facilities rely on a dependant, unsustainable approach. Here’s a model that explains how it happens.

Our Sustainable approach

Together with our friends at Fair Action International, we've adopted a new approach to achieving Target 6.1.

We build water kiosks, monitor water usage and make water available to the community at extremely affordable prices, instead of offering it for free.

The funds help us maintain the water kiosks so the community always has access to water. This helps break the cycle of unsustainability that leads to water poverty.

A global petition to champion our cause

Our three-step strategy:

Gather voices

The more voices we gather, the more funds we can raise from developed countries towards international aid for Target 6.1.

A successful approach as demonstrated by other countries and causes.
