Families Are Gaining Dignity And Freedom With A Basic Household Necessity

Apr 28, 2015 By Christi Mulligan
Three mothers and one common cause is the message in this video. One in nine people do not have access to clean water and one in four do not have toilets. But as if those statistics are not staggering enough, women and children around the globe spend 140 million hours a day collecting water for their families.

These three women are part of the solution to change these numbers. Water.org is dedicated to providing "innovative, market-based solutions that change lives every day through safe water and sanitation." For more than 20 years, this organization has supported these efforts and programs such as their "water credit," which helps provide families with the money needed to access clean water and sanitation.
