Why H2O

Video from Global Partners for Development about water

Access to clean water leads to education: "I've been teaching here for eight years. Before the borehole well, we had 46 students. Now we have close to 400 students!" - Mohammed Yahaya, teacher *

Access to clean water leads to income: "Now we have gardens where we plant and raise vegetables we hardly ever had before. This garden farm empowers me economically, because I am able to harvest from here, go to the market, sell, and then put some money aside for emergencies or things we need." - Sekina *

Access to clean water leads to health: "We shall not finally defeat AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, or any of the other infectious diseases that plague the developing world until we have also won the battle for safe drinking water, sanitation and basic health care." - Kofi Annan, former United Nations Secretary-General
