Community Support – Good Water Project
Children in Sub-saharan Africa spend 4 hours to go fetch water every single day.
Many of these children and their families lack access to clean drinking water and therefore need to travel long lengths to access this basic human right.
Through your support we can give them back their 4 hours so that they can dream again…
Hello. My name is Mamad.
Every morning, I walk for 4 hours to collect water for my family.
I am hoping for a miracle, the day I do not need to go fetch water.
So I can study and play with my friends.
My dream is to study and play soccer.
However, if I don’t collect eater for my family each day,
we will have nothing to drink.
If there was clean water near my house and school,
we would not get sick and I would be able to play soccer as much as I want to.
However, when I wake up tomorrow I am back on the road to collect more water.
The Issue At Hand
Children in Sub-Saharan Africa lacking a basic drinking water service at their school
Children in Sub-Saharan Africa lacking a basic sanitation service at their school
The time spent on collecting water in Sub-Saharan Africa, for a quarter of the population
Join us by giving 4 hours of your time for our children
This is how ‘community support’ enables positive change for children:
*As Good Neighbors Australia currently focuses on countries in Asia-Pacific, your donation will be used for the below projects in this region.
This allows us to drink
clean water at school
If water facilities are installed in schools and communities, more people can have access to clean and safe water.
This means we do not have to spend hours fetching water
Increasing access to clean water allows children stay in school and dream for their future.
Access to adequate facilities means we do not need to miss out on school
Clean and safe toilets allow girls to attend school during menstruation without worry.
Education and access to resources will allow us to remain healthy
The provision of sanitary kits and hygiene education protects children from the dangers of disease.
These children have to give up 4 hours of their lives each day to access safe water. This means they miss out on classes and time to play.
Would you spare your 4 hours to give these children a chance to dream?
