Water and Young Children
Infants and young children are especially susceptible to diseases because their immune systems are experiencing everything for the first time. Even in developed countries, lots of moms boil water before giving it to their children - just to be doubly safe. In poor countries, the fuel for the fire can be so expensive that mothers can't afford to boil water and cook food. At The Water Project, we're working with local communities to provide access to safe water at schools and where children live. A water project, like a new well, can transform a child's life.
Water unlocks potential by helping kids stay healthy so they can stay in school.
