Water Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) Program
According to UNICEF almost fifty percent of the developing worlds population-2.5 billion people-lack improved sanitation facilities and over 884 million people so use unsafe drinking water sources. Inadequate access to safe water and sanitation services coupled win poor hygiene practices kills and sickens thousands of children everyday and leads to impoverished and diminished opportunities for thousands more.
Poor sanitation water and hygiene have many other serious repercussions. Children- and particularly girls- are denied the right to education because their schools lack private and decent sanitation facilities, women are forced to spend large parts of their day fetching water
Poor farmers and wage earners are less productive due to illness, health systems are overwhelmed and national economies suffer without (WASH) Water, Sanitation and Hygiene.
