For people in developing countries, access to clean water can improve health, help kids go to school, and give women more time to care for their families and earn an income. At charity: water, we work with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place where we work. And with every water point we fund, our partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.
