Loa’s Story

Loa lost everything.

When the market for her crops crashed, Loa and her husband had to sell off all their belongings—including their home. Hopeless and with nowhere to go, Loa knew something needed to change.

But without access to clean water, how could Loa take advantage of a new opportunity to transform her life?

We envision a world where Loa has access to clean water because we understand first-hand how water affects her and her family holistically—her health, safety, education, and her ability to take charge of her future and economic livelihood. Clean water has everything to do with it.

Clean water has everything to do with…

Health & Wellness

One child under five dies every 60 seconds from diarrheal disease as a result of unsafe drinking water. (WHO)

Violence

On the road to water or sanitation facilities, women and girls are left vulnerable to sexual violence. (IASC)

Education

Many children spend 6-8 hours a day fetching water—time that could be spent in school. (UNICEF)

Economic Empowerment

90% of the clean water burden falls on women, leaving no time for other income-generating activities to help the family. (UNDESA)

Start your own fundraiser

Let’s go! Gather your friends, family, youth group, or church.

Style a fundraiser for clean water access starting now until December 31. Choose a goal like one of these to support women like Loa and her family around the world.

Water Quality Lab Test

One child under five dies every 60 seconds from diarrheal disease as a result of unsafe drinking water. A donation of $125 could fund a high-quality lab test for water sources to check safety.

High-Quality Handpump

90% of the clean water burden falls on women, leaving no time for other income-generating activities for the family. A donation of $800 could fund an accessible, closer, high-quality handpump.

School Bathroom

On the road to sanitation facilities far away, children are left vulnerable to sexual violence. A donation of $5,000 could fund the construction of a school bathroom and help with basic sanitation access.

Borehead Water Well

Children can spend 6-8 hours a day fetching water, keeping them from school. A donation of $10,000 could fund a borehole water well that’s closer to home and gives girls like Hasanatu more time in school.

Water & Sanitation Emergency Response

When disaster strikes, the most vulnerable people are in urgent need of clean water access and sanitation supplies. A donation of $40,000 could fund an emergency response team, including a leader and a volunteer, a desalination kit, 2 generators, 500 water filters, 100 solar mats, 100 tarps.
Clean water has everything to do with it.
