Unsafe Water, a Women’s Crisis

More than one in eight people  worldwide, that’s 785 million people lack access to safe water.

Usually the responsibility for looking after the health of a family falls on the women of the family. 

This can involve women in walking large distances to get the best quality water from a clear stream.

Even then the water, although looking clear, may still contain bacteria!

Alternativly a family may be spending up to 25 – 50% of their income on buying bottled water.

Our ‘Safe Water for Every Child‘ project with the provision of SkyHydrant installations besides protecting children also;

  • Improves the overall health of the whole community;
  • Reduces the pressure on women in Developing Countries;
  • Reduces poverty;
  • Reduces plastic waste.

All for a capital cost of $1 per person, per year,
