Every day, more than 800 children under 5 die from diarrhea caused by contaminated water, poor sanitation, and unsafe hygiene practices. And the daily walk for water is robbing women and girls of their futures. One in 10 people on the planet still have no access to clean water. That’s 785 million people.
Together with our donors and partners, we have an extremely ambitious but achievable plan to reach everyone, everywhere we work with clean water by 2030—around 50 million people. We’re on track with this commitment, having already empowered 20 million people with lasting access to clean water since October 2015.
