The gift of clean water is life changing.
Unclean water is the greatest common threat to life, health, education, and economic advancement among the people we strive to help. Getting clean water is a daily challenge shared by over 313 million people in sub-Saharan Africa. International health organizations report that 115 people in Africa die every hour due to water-borne diseases.
Fund a microloan to start a small income project providing clean water to neighbors. A filter-with-buckets system can be used over a lifetime to provide clean water and improve health and productivity by reducing the chances of illness from water-borne pathogens. When the loan is repaid, the monies can be lent again and again, expanding access to the benefits of clean water.
