To generations of safe water
Your donations have empowered millions of women like Rebecca to provide their families with access to safe water - and so much more.
When her kids were young, Rebecca spent most of her days walking to a stream or well for water. When those sources did not offer enough, she had to purchase water from vendors. Now a grandmother, she watched her children raise their own families in this same reality.
Rebecca learned she could get access to a small, affordable loan from a local microfinance institution. Thanks to Water.org, she and her husband not only got a small loan to construct a water tap at their home, they took out a loan to lay pipe so all of their neighbors could connect to the municipal water line as well. Rebecca solved her own family’s water crisis and helped provide a solution for her neighbors, too.
