On too many occasions, water accessibility is an easy determinant of socioeconomic status. When a child lacks access to clean water or the adequate amount of daily water, there is a domino effect of issues that follow.
- Long walks to a well in the morning can make a child tired or even skip school
- Bullying can occur when children are visibly unclean at school.
- Young children are more likely to be impacted by disease.
- Children are more likely to drop out when their family needs help at home.
Fact: 443 million school days each year are lost from water-related illness.
Everyone deserves equality. Everyone deserves clean water.
