Water gives women more time

Access to safe water doesn't just provide women with one of life's necessities; it can unlock the possibility of a whole new life.

Across India – as in much of the world – the burden of collecting water falls squarely on the shoulders of women and girls. Making it hard to survive, and even harder to prosper.

That's why we work to connect women to practical and efficient water solutions: so that they can write a new future for themselves.

Because when a woman has easy access to safe water, it gives her time to begin practicing a trade and earning an income. And when a young girl can turn a tap in her own home, she can spend the day at school, instead of in line.

Today, you can help change a tomorrow. Give the gift of safe water.
