You can give it back. Without reliable access to clean and safe water, women and girls must walk miles to the nearest lake, river, or pond to collect dirty water. Some wake up before the sun and return home after it sets. Many will lose their ability to complete primary education — or even lose their lives — on this dangerous, daily trek.
It doesn’t have to be this way. You can change their lives today. For just $20/month, you’ll bring six people lifesaving access to clean water every year and end their grueling walk for water.

A schedule set by dirty water can mean 4 a.m. wake-up calls. It can mean hours of walking. Missed classes. Neverending chores. A relentless, painstaking juggle of needs, wants, and dreams.
But give time and clean water, and the daily grind grinds to a halt. Women and girls can suddenly — and wonderfully — live lives free from the burden of dirty water and wasted time.Give time (and so much more)
All of our operational expenses are funded by a private community of donors, so you can trust 100% of your donation will go directly to water solutions, every cent, every time. But we don’t stop there. From our commitment to equipping local partners, to our tech, to the environmental sustainability of our water projects: “good enough” is never good enough for us. We’re setting new standards for transparency and innovation. These companies and organizations agree.
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.
