Did you know how many people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water? In Latin America alone, 35 percent of the population lacks running water. For communities without clean water, children often fall ill 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 community at a time. To date, we have completed over 150 projects, impacting the lives of more than 310,000 people in Latin America.
