Nearly half of the kids on the planet woke up this morning to a world without water.

  • 2.1 billion – 2.1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe water at home. (WHO)
  • 3.7 Miles – Women and children in the developing world walk an average of 3.7 miles (6 km) per day to collect water. (USAID). After such an arduous chore, they may arrive late and tired at school. Being ‘needed at home’ is a major reason why children, especially girls from poor families, drop out of school. (UNICEF)
  • 570 million – Nearly 570 million children lack access to basic drinking water at school. (UNICEF)

You can reimagine a world where children everywhere have access to safe water.

Safe Water

Affordable access to safe water improves health, saves lives and provides economic benefits through cost and time savings and increased school attendance, allowing communities to thrive.

Hygiene

Hygiene and sanitation education is critical for fighting waterborne disease and ensures communities maximize the full benefits of safe water.

Local Heroes

Water4 empowers local entrepreneurs to start, operate, and grow sustainable water service businesses that provide safe water to communities at an affordable cost.
