Access to clean water and proper sanitation is a Human Right.

The lack of clean water Africa
The United Nations estimate that Sub-Saharan Africa alone looses approximately 40 billion potential work hours per year collecting water. The rate of return on spending on water and sanitation can exceed other public investments such as transport, health or education and liberate communities in finding economic opportunities.
Empowering the thirsty
We create sustainable clean water sources by drilling and constructing water-well networks in rural Tanzanian communities for people living in drought. Our primary goal is to reduce the health risks for families associated with the consumption of contaminated water and to save the time they spend collecting it.
Access to clean water and proper sanitation greatly improves the quality of life for the whole community and brings tangible benefits for their health and economy, directly contributing to the reduction of poverty in the affected areas. Our Stable-Clean-Water initiatives are about promoting human progress by helping drought-stricken families escape the vicious cycle of poverty and disease that drains their health and financial resources.
Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence combined, including war.
43% of the attributed deaths are children under the age of 5.
Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives each week.
