Lack of clean water and sanitation causes 80% of all the sicknesses and diseases in the rural communities and poor urban centers in the developing world. In African alone Over 332 million people lack access to clean, safe water, and every minute a child dies from diseases caused by contaminated drinking water. To acquire it on the average women and children (girls) spend 4 hours each day walking long distance collecting water, and what they find is contaminated water and makes children ill. This crisis does not just cause poor health and claim lives but it creates a huge problem; the burden of fetching water which often falls on women and girls, preventing them from working or getting an education. Access to clean water affects all aspects of life. It causes poverty and lack of hope. It is needless suffering.

Help us to continue to solve the water crisis of the communities so that death of children from diarrhea-related diseases, would drop dramatically if sufficient water for sanitation and drinking is available. A child will not spent his days fetching clean water, hence attending school will be simple and possible. The risk of sexual assault will decrease, and young girls will have proper sanitation facilities. It helps women get the same opportunities as men and relieves the burden of walking long distance and unleashes the freedom to work, learn, grow, and dream. Teams are actively implementing this bold initiative to provide safe water and reliable water now. Your commitment makes it possible. Please don't wait to get involve.

These cause will promote good health, wealth, education, gender equality and freedom; as there will not be more time spent fetching water a cost to human health, productivity, and in many cases, educational opportunities-a burden that is borne disproportionately by women and girls. The rural communities will remain healthy and productive and this will boost the country's economy and provide enough man-power and intellectuals who will contribute massively to the development of Ghana.
