WaterAid

eFestivals supports WaterAid

published: Thu 15th Jan 2009

eFestivals is committed to giving at least 1% of our turnover (turnover, not profit) to charities or good causes each year.

WaterAid
The major beneficiary each year is WaterAid, who work in 17 countries providing water, sanitation and hygiene education to some of the world's poorest people.

Clean water is essential for life, but one in eight of the world's population does not have access to it. This, and lack of safe sanitation, result in over two million people dying from water-related diseases every year. The lack of clean water close to people's homes also affects people's time, livelihoods and quality of life.

Safe water and sanitation close to people's homes have far reaching and wide ranging benefits which extend way beyond the expected improvements to health and the reduction in time spent collecting water.

WaterAid believes that when they are combined water, sanitation and hygiene education form the foundation for all other development and so provide the key to poverty reduction. Their projects enable communities to achieve a better quality of life and escape the spiral of poverty.
