: Four young children wade into a lake to fill yellow, plastic bottles with water. Garbage can be seen just under the surface of the lake a short distance from the children.

Esther (8), pictured far left, and her three siblings begin their day at 5:00 am, so they can fetch the water their family requires. They make this trip four times a day. They walk to a community dam to gather water that is contaminated with parasites, including blood-sucking snails and worms.

Everyone, everywhere deserves clean water. Yet 663 million people in the world do not have it.

One third of the world’s population, 2.4 billion people, lack access to proper sanitation and every day nearly 1000 children under 5 die because of a combination of poor water, inadequate sanitation and lack of hygiene. We can change this.
