Why We Do What We Do...
More than 600 million people do not have access to an improved water source.
Water, sanitation, and hygiene has the potential to prevent at least 9% of the global disease burden and 6% of all deaths.
More than 1.8 billion people lack access to improved sanitation (nearly 25% of the world’s population).
Water and sanitation interventions are cost effective across all world regions.
