Water is life's mater and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.

Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
The Problem.

Globally water is life's most basic need, and yet billions of people spend hours searching for it.

People in rural areas draw their drinking water mainly from surface sources such as ponds, rivers and lakes. These sources are often watering holes for livestock, downhill from latrines, and catchments for mudslide debris. Couple dangerous water sources with limited awareness and education of proper sanitation and hygiene techniques, and not having access to clean water can be life-threatening.

Time, Education, and safety.

Lack of clean water or poor sanitation means that girls are missing out on vital education.
