HELP. GIVE WATER AND IMPROVE HEALTH.
For about $34 per person, The Water Project is able to work with local partners to provide access to clean water as well as hygiene and sanitation programs. These training programs greatly reduce the disease burden in their communities, allowing villagers to increase their productivity and begin working themselves out of poverty. You can be a part of the solution to reduce disease among the world’s poorest communities.
Safe water, clean hands, healthy bodies. Time lost to sickness is reduced and people can get back to the work of lifting themselves out of poverty.
Access to water can break the cycle of poverty. The communities we serve are ready to grow. We can’t wait to see how they choose to do it.
Access to water leads to food security. With less crop loss, hunger is reduced. Schools can feed students with gardens, reducing costs.
Water and Young Children
Infants and young children are especially susceptible to diseases because their immune systems are experiencing everything for the first time. Even in developed countries, lots of moms boil water before giving it to their children – just to be doubly safe. In poor countries, the fuel for the fire can be so expensive that mothers can’t afford to boil water and cook food.
At The Water Project, we’re working with local communities to provide access to safe water at schools and where children live. A water project, like a new well, can transform a child’s life.
Water unlocks potential by helping kids stay healthy so they can stay in school.
In developing countries, about 80% of illnesses are linked to poor water conditions

Improving Health in Africa
Begins with Access to Clean and safe water
Tiny worms and bacteria live in water naturally. Most of the bacteria are pretty harmless. But some of them can cause devastating disease in humans. And since they can’t be seen, they can’t be avoided.
