The majority live in isolated rural areas and spend hours every day walking to collect water for their family. Not only does walking for water keep children out of school or take up time that parents could be using to earn money, but the water often carries diseases that can make everyone sick.

We know how to solve the problem, and we make progress every day thanks to the help of local partners and generous supporters.When you donate to charity: water, you’re investing in the hopes and dreams of families around the world.

“I used to have monthly subscriptions with several different companies. But then the makeup, tote bags, and international snacks started to accumulate. With The Spring, I can donate that money and see the impact my support makes around the world.”
“The Spring isn't just a subscription. It's a community of passionate investors. Being part of The Spring makes me hopeful that there will be more children who can dream bigger because they don't have to carry the weight of dirty water.”
