100 MILLION REASONS


With 24/7 household water supply, girls + women around the world have 100 million more hours for activities other than carrying water.

Our piped-water projects create more time

It can take up to 5 hours each day to collect water for a household. With water available at the turn of a tap, women and girls in our project communities have gained 100 million more hours for school, earning an income, food production, and spending time with friends and family.

We are committed to true equity in water access, ensuring everyone in the world has the same access to piped water that we expect. At every home, school, clinic, and community gathering place our project participants have 24/7 access to safe water, a toilet, and a shower, preventing disease transmission and unlocking their potential.

Support clean water & toilet projects in Honduras, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and now Kenya.

"We are different now than before. We feel differently about ourselves."

Before the town of San Pedrito completed their water project, Doña Lidia spent her days trekking up and down steep mountain trails to find water. Now their new water system pipes water to every home, school, and clinic—for 24/7 access to safe water, a toilet, and a shower.

Now Doña Lidia proudly reports, “We can all drink. We can all bathe at home. We wash our vegetables with soap. My children get to school on time with fresh faces and clean clothes. My house is always tidy. I have time to rest.” And then she added with a smile, “I even grow flowers all year long.”
