For more than twenty years, Water.org has pioneered safe water and sanitation solutions that give women hope, children health, and communities a future.
It’s because of their amazing work that from August 22 through August 26, we’re donating $0.25 to Water.org for every new user who joins Tab for a Cause.
Through its WaterCredit program, Water.org allows people in need to access small loans for water connections or toilets. Instead of paying 125 percent in interest from loan sharks, WaterCredit borrowers pay between 10 to 24 percent in interest. Because of this, WaterCredit microloans are repaid at a rate of 99 percent and, as of March 2016, they’ve empowered more than 3.6 million people in nine countries with access to safe water and sanitation. Once families are able to address their water needs, they can focus on what matters most.
E is for Education
For kids in India, access to safe water at home means they have time to go to school. Whether they become a doctor or nurse, teacher or writer, Water.org believes safe water is the way to getting the education needed for a bright future.
Thanks to the impact Water.org has made to families in Mysore, India, children don’t have to forgo a day’s worth of education to find and collect water. Instead, they can focus on a bright future — one full of clean water, good health, and life.
Thanks to your support, Water.org is able to provide lifesaving solutions to those in need. You can learn more how water is the way to an education here.
