Almost 6x the population of the United States lives without a household water connection. And when it comes to sanitation, more people have a mobile phone than a toilet.
844 million people - 1 in 9 - lack access to water.
2.3 billion people — 1 in 3 — lack access to a toilet.
Every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease.
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.
