About 16% of the world’s rural population does not have access to safe drinking water supplies, as opposed to only four percent of the world’s urban population. And while 18% of those in urban areas lack safe sanitation facilities, in rural areas that number skyrockets to 50%, which equates to an astonishing one-third of the world’s people.
Absence of toilets and safe water means that over 800 million people around the world have no choice but to practice open defecation, which contaminates water supplies and contributes to the spread of water-borne diseases. Children are especially susceptible to sickness caused by open defecation practices and bathing in dirty water sources.
Opportunity starts with water. Access to safe, clean water can protect and save lives, just by being available. When clean water is only a few minutes rather than a few hours away, the community has more time to dedicate to education and economic opportunities. This turns problems into potential: unlocking education, economic prosperity, and improved health. Water is the way to break the cycle of poverty, to protect and save lives and to make a bright future possible for all.
We are determined to make a big impact in the communities we serve, specifically empowering women, whose lives are disproportionately impacted by the crisis, through access to safe, clean water. We established water cooperatives for women in their communities. This unlocks opportunity for education, economic potential, and improved health. We promote good sanitation practices by makings toilets and safe water sources accessible in struggling communities. The solutions we offer are working and gaining momentum; they are not quick, temporary fixes. They help the people we empower solve their immediate needs and continue to enrich the rest of their lives.
When you donate to Enliven Water, you can be assured that your donation is making an impact in the area that needs it most. We are excellent stewards of all gifts we receive. We spend 90% of the funds we receive to change lives with safe, clean water and the other 10% contributes to program support.
We’re always on the lookout for individuals like you who are committed to ending this crisis. Visit our How to Help section to find out more about ways to donate or volunteer.
