Help us make a meaningful difference today
Imagine what life would be like without a toilet
Women and girls around the world spend around 266 million hours every day finding a safe place to relieve themselves.
Before Vijayalakshmi and her children had a toilet in their home, they’d go outdoors to relieve themselves. Now, with a sanitation solution at home, her children have more time for school and can look ahead to bright futures.
Donate to Water.org to help empower people in need with access to toilets at home and the health and safety they bring.
1 in 4 people lack access to a toilet
Nearly 1 million people die each year from water, sanitation and hygiene-related diseases. With their own toilet, Ranjana and her family’s lives have changed forever.
With the money she saved on doctor and hospital bills, Ranjana was able to buy a sewing machine to earn her own income.
Imagine not being able to go to the toilet during the day
1 in 3 schools lack access to basic sanitation. Without toilets, children are at risk of falling ill from unhygienic conditions and missing school.
Now with running water and toilets at school, these children in Rasulpur can attend school regularly, helping to break the poverty cycle.
