Did you know that many people in the world have no access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation? In Latin America alone, 35 percent of the population lacks running water. For communities without clean water, children are often sick and miss school. Women spend a large part of their day collecting water, preventing them from devoting time and energy to their families. Simply put, quality of life greatly suffers without clean water.

Global Partners: Running Waters changes that, one village at a time. To date, we have completed 151 projects, impacting the lives of over 310,000 people.
