Lack of access to water and toilets is an injustice that overwhelmingly impacts low-income and marginalized communities. Over 3.5 billion people worldwide lack these combined services. Water1st builds community-scale projects that consist of household-level metered, piped-water systems and hygienic toilets which provide numerous health and economic benefits to entire communities. The lives of women and girls are transformed. When they are liberated from the laborious task of water collection, they have time and energy to attend school and make income-generating activities possible.
Our 2022 Give Water Give Life fundraiser will support new projects in Honduras, Bangladesh, Ethiopia and our newest project country, Kenya.
