Did you know how 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 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.

Recently Completed: Las Joyas Water Project

For the past few months, the ASUVI (AsociaciĆ³n Unidos por la Vida) team has worked hard on the Las Joyas water project. Today, 636 people have easy access to clean water.
