The Humble Bundle community has sponsored projects in eleven countries, serving over 298,000 people since they first joined charity: water as a partner in 2012. They've supported clean water projects by purchasing dozens of Humble’s signature bundles of games, books, and software. Humble has also highlighted charity: water as their monthly featured charity and rallied their community to bring clean water to Nepal following the 2015 earthquake.
Humble Bundle has partnered with charity: water to change that. Explore their impact below:
For the accountants, bankers, and math-minded folks in the audience, here are the cold hard facts: according to charity: water’s MAP framework*, a family saves an average of 70 minutes per day once they have access to clean water.
We realize that’s a per-household figure — not per person. However, we also know that women and girls almost always bear the burden of collecting water for their families. It’s a norm we’ve witnessed time and time again, and we’re not the only ones. Overwhelmingly, it is their time that gets stolen, and with clean water, saved.
*MAP is charity: water’s monitoring & evaluation framework which collects data across a range of water, sanitation, and hygiene indicators. Through MAP, charity: water has funded the collection of more than 65,000 household surveys across 18 countries.
This number represents the total number of people who will gain access to clean water as reported by charity: water’s implementing partners. This number is updated as charity: water receives new information from partners in the field.
This number includes all countries where Humble Bundle has funded projects.
