More than twice the population of the United States lacks access to clean water. And when it comes to sanitation, more people have access to a mobile phone than a toilet.
There are over 663 million people without access to safe drinking water.
There are 2.4 billion people without access to proper sanitation.
Every 90 seconds a child dies from a preventable water-related illness.
It would take donations of $200 billion a year over five years to end the global water crisis.
The scale of our current solution doesn't match the magnitude of the problem.
What if we could make it feasible to meet that pent-up demand? And, what if we could engage the very people affected by the global water crisis to help solve the crisis? This is the innovation that is WaterEquity.
