Access to clean drinking water changes everything:
# 1 Health:
Diseases caused by contaminated water are responsible for more deaths than all forms of violence, including wars.
A water access must be secured, the removed water will be clean and remain. This is made possible in holistic projects, above all, through measures for sanitary care and hygiene.
# 2 time:
Alone on the African continent, women need 40 million hours a year to get water.
Without water connection in your own house, water garage is time consuming. In particular, women win through a well close time, which can be used for self-determined tasks.
# 3 Education:
Access to clean drinking water helps children to keep in school longer, especially girls.
Missing water access is a reason to stay away from the school. In particular, girls benefit from holistic projects, which in addition to water also think sanitary and hygiene components (wash). Otherwise, the first menstruation is a widespread reason not to visit the school.
# 4 Female empowerment:
Access to clean drinking water allows women and girls more freedoms. Recovered time can be used purposefully: You can go to school, start your own companies and have more influence on your own future.
