Generations of Safe Water

Generations of Safe Water

For millions of families around the world, access to funds stands between them and safe water in their home. Water.org’s solutions focus on breaking down this financial barrier, empowering women like Rebecca in Uganda to provide their families with access to safe water — and so much more.

When her kids were young, Rebecca spent most of her days walking to a stream or well for water. When those sources did not offer enough, she had to purchase water from vendors. Later as a grandmother, she watched her children raise their own families in this same reality.

Everything changed when Rebecca learned she could get access to a small, affordable loan from a local microfinance institution. With the help of Water.org, she and her husband not only got a small loan to construct a water tap at their home, they took out a loan to lay pipe so their neighbors could connect to the municipal water line as well. Rebecca solved her own family’s water crisis and helped provide a solution for her neighbors, too.
