Safe water protects and saves lives
As we face a global pandemic, the health of families around the world relies on access to safe water and people like you.
31 million people are more resilient to this global pandemic
Water.org has empowered more than 31 million people with access to safe water or sanitation. Access to safe water at home directly helps families in need prepare and protect themselves from this pandemic, because they can wash their hands and don't have to leave their homes to collect water.
There's a smart way to end the water crisis
Millions of people around the world could get access to safe water in their homes with the help of small, affordable loans.
That's where Water.org comes in. We are here to bring safe water and sanitation to the world through access to small, affordable loans. There is both a need and demand for these loans, because when people have access to safe water, they get time back to go to school, earn an income and take care of their family. It changes their world.
For more than 25 years, with your help, we've been providing families with hope, health and the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty.
Your donation is a powerful catalyst
One of the major barriers to safe water and sanitation is affordable financing. We address this barrier head-on through access to small, easily repayable loans. Every repaid loan creates a new opportunity for another family.
By supporting Water.org, you are part of a solution that reaches more people, faster. Together with our 160 partners around the world, we've helped mobilize $2.5 billion in capital to support small loans that bring access to safe water and sanitation to millions of people in need.
From safe water flows health and hope
Alemtsenay and her family often suffered from water-related illnesses such as typhoid and malaria, which prevented them from going to work or school. A small loan made possible by Water.org empowered Alemtsenay to fund just what she needed—a water tap and toilet at home.
For families like Alemtsenay’s, access to safe water and sanitation at home means health and hope.
Now more than ever, access to safe water is critical to the health of families around the world. That's why we're committed to continuing our work to empower people living in poverty with access to safe water and the health and hope that flow from it.
