ONLY HOUSEHOLD PIPED WATER ENDS THE WALK FOR WATER

Gifts of $100 or more are matched until December 31.

When girls and women are free of the laborious task of water collection, they have time and energy for school, employment, and leadership.

HOUSEHOLD TAP WATER

= GENDER EQUITY

Women and girls are one of the world’s greatest untapped resources.

A woman multiplies the impact of an investment made in her future by extending benefits to her family, her community, and the world around her.

Water piped to household faucets—not a hand pump, kiosk, or water filter—is specifically associated with higher school attendance and enrollment, especially for girls. Educating girls has generational and societal impacts. More educated females pursue better healthcare for themselves and their families, marry later, and prioritize the education of their own children.

A 10% increase in girls’ school attendance increases a country’s GDP by 3%.

End the walk for water for women and girls.
It’s a smart investment.

WATER AT HOME, AT THE TURN OF A TAP

Expanding to Kenya
Water1st is one of the few organizations, if not the only, committed to construction of piped water networks to provide a 24/7 supply of safe water at household faucets, completely ending the walk for water.

Up to half of water systems in low-income countries fail within 2 – 5 years. Water1st projects are different.
Over 99% of our projects are still in operation.
