E is for End Water Poverty

Posted: April 8, 2011 in Children, Education, Mothers, water, women

Fact: “4100 children die every day due to preventable water related diseases,
women waste hours each day in the search for water.”

Fact: “Girls are denied an education because they are tasked with fetching water, or drop out of school in adolescence because of inadequate sanitation facilities.”

These facts and many more can be found at End Water Poverty, a coalition of 185 members in 55 countries dedicated to ending the water and sanitation crisis that exists in our world.

Some of End Water Poverty’s campaigns include the establishment of the Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) partnership in 2007, World’s Longest Toilet Queue, World Walks for Water and numerous other campaigns.

Will you join in the fight to End Water Poverty?
