visit local schools and community organizations to share the message of
the importance of water/sanitation to our lives and livelihoods,
conditions around the world and the impact that simple water/sanitation
interventions have on the lives of women and children in communities
around the world.
also organize fundraisers and outreach events to build the local
coalition of citizens and professionals to make a difference in lives

What are the Global Impacts?
Developing water/sanitation/hygiene in developing countries has an immediate impact on local communities.
- Children no longer need to spend 2-4 hours each day fetching water – they can attend school instead.
no longer need to travel several miles to wash clothes or collect water
for domestic chores – they can participate actively in their
communities' development and their children's progress
no longer need to quit school once they reach adolescence – privacy and
access to proper sanitation means they continue in school
no longer need to spend their time/money taking their children to the
hospital – they can focus their efforts on trade and income-generating
- Economic development of the communities has been shown to improve social and political equity and access to justice
