Everything starts with safe water
More than one billion people in the world live without access to safe water and
electricity. This has a negative impact on health, education, equality, wealth and the environment. Safe
water improves living conditions and enables a way out of poverty.
In large parts of the world, women and girls are responsible for managing the water. And in offgrid areas, this needs many hours of work just to make the water drinkable. Therefor, many girls and women do not have time to go to school or work. It also means that trees are cut down for firewood so that the water can be boiled. Charcoals and gas are also used, which contributes negatively to the greenhouse effect.
