Playtime in India

For kids in India, the humid Summer and Monsoon seasons make access to safe water a playtime prerequisite.

Summer is a time for fun and play. But for the millions of kids living in India who don't have access to safe water, the carefree joys of summer can be a world away. 

Time spent collecting water detracts from the hours kids can spend in school or playing with their friends, and the hot climate of the subcontinent makes a safe drink of water a playtime necessity. Yet, whether biking with a best friend or skipping rope at home, kids need more than just refreshment: they need to know that the next sip of water won't make them sick. 

With your help, we've brought safe water to hundreds of thousands of children across India. And safe water has given those same kids more time to laugh and play.
