There are currently 663 million people in the world that do not have access to clean drinking water. Each year the Water Crisis kills more people than war, AIDS, and famine combined.
WATER CHANGES EVERYTHING.
When you take a good look at all the challenges facing the global poor, one thing stands out. There’s one basic human need that, when met, sparks prosperity and productivity faster than any other single fix: access to clean, safe water. Clean water can prevent unnecessary deaths, save time, and improve health. It enables people to be energetic members of society and escape the cycle of poverty. Water is essential to every part of life—health, economic growth, access to education, and equality for women and children.
“In Africa alone, women spend an average of 40 billion hours a year walking to collect dirty water. Access to clean water gives communities more time to grow food, earn an income, and go to school -- all of which fight poverty. That's why providing water access is the first step to creating lasting change around the world... until no one has to drink dirty water,” says CEO of Cause Roast, Greg Pittman.
We believe that now more than ever we have the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and help bring about positive and life-saving change in the world. Together we can help prevent unnecessary death and illness, catalyze economic growth, and restore lives. The craziest thing we can do is nothing.
