Did you know you can make a difference with your voice?

THE POWER OF YOUR VOICE

Your voice on its own has limited power

But 1 million voices from one country empowers their officials to commit to Mission 2020's funding plan

For example with 1 million Australian voices, the Australian government will provide funding for 12 million victims

In this way,

YOUR VOICE CAN SAVE 12 LIVES!

This is how powerful your voice can be when united

How do we correspond with governments?

Every month we notify our government officials and the officials of every developed country that water security is a priority

We know that once we have 100,000 - 1,000,000 voices, the governments will start to increase their funding toward this cause
