The Vital Importance of Clean Water
Water is a fundamental human need. Each person on earth requires at least twenty to fifty liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and simply keeping themselves clean. Polluted water isn’t just dirty—it’s deadly. Some 1.8 million people die every year of diarrheal diseases like cholera. Tens of millions of others are seriously sickened by a host of water-related ailments—many of which are easily preventable.
Impacts of Polluted Water on Health and Society
Clean Water International understands that education suffers when sick children miss school. They understand that economic opportunities are routinely lost to the impacts of rampant illness and the time-consuming processes of acquiring water where it is not readily available. Children and women bear the brunt of these burdens. Water is essential for hydration and food production—but sanitation is an equally essential and complimentary use of water. A lack of proper sanitation services breeds disease and can also rob people of their basic human dignity.
Clean Water International’s Decade of Impact
In the ten years of being an advocate in building a better future through safe and clean water, Clean Water International celebrates the lives transformed and realizes there is more to be done as they continue their work worldwide. In pursuit of their vision of seeing a world where children can reach their potential because they have access to basic water, sanitation, and hygiene, they are scaling impact. As implied, for transformation to happen, they believe that certain conditions need to be in place: active communities, strong leadership, equality, focus on sustainability, and partnerships between development sectors.
Below is the list of Clean Water International’s approaches which makes them different:
We work with local leaders to design and implement the right solutions for each community.
Recommending technologies best suited for a community’s needs and capacity to maintain.
Ensuring the longevity of our solutions through mindful planning and implementation.

Their on-the-ground expertise provides their partners with sustainable projects where their products can be co-branded with their partners’ logos. Clean Water International teams will also wear their partners’ branded shirts to use project media for their fundraising efforts. It’s all about helping as many children, families, and schools as they can!
