Safe water for all.

Empowering women and girls with safe water.

  • Share:

Water is at the heart of all we do. Our products. Our company. Our customers’ lives and our own. We understand just how crucial safe water is to daily life. And the fact that one-third of the world’s population lives without it is unacceptable.

Women and girls quite literally carry the bulk of this burden. Hundreds of thousands walk miles to collect water not only to drink, but to cook, bathe, wash dishes and clothing. The time devoted to collecting water and time lost to waterborne illness means they often miss work and school as a result. We’re working with humanitarian partners to help change that, empowering one woman, one girl at a time through Safe Water for All.

The facts about women and water.

Children miss 443 million school days every year because of water collection tasks or waterborne illness.

Together, women and girls around the world spend 200 million hours each day collecting and carrying water.

On average, women and girls across the globe walk 6km every day to get water that often isn’t safe.

Our commitment to safe water.

We are using our water expertise and partnering with humanitarian organizations to help bring safe water and sanitation to communities everywhere—900,000 people impacted and counting.
