One Million Goal is excited to support the work of Water.org with this year's fundraising efforts. See below to learn about the incredible work they are doing and see how YOUR donation to One Million Goal will help those in need. 

You are investing in potential

GIVE WATER

Elenita is proud she can now spend her days at home, sewing bags and aprons for a living. This was not always the case. Until recently, a large portion of her time was focused on finding water for her family. With funding to assess new markets, Water.org found millions of people in the Philippines had the potential to repay a small loan for a water connection. It was this knowledge that ultimately led to empowering Elenita to end her own water crisis.

You are investing in people

GIVE WATER

What would you do if the water you gave your family to drink made them sick? Recognizing some of her niece and nephew's health issues could be attributed to consuming unsafe water and the lack of a toilet at home, Lelita was determined to get a water connection and toilet installed in their house. Read how your support helped empower Lelita to change her loved ones' lives.

The impact of your donations is multiplied

GIVE WATER

Every $1 invested in our solution is equal to $24 toward safe water and sanitation solutions. How is that possible? We use some of the money donated to help financial institutions in the countries where we work to establish water and sanitation loan portfolios. Those institutions then attract commercial capital and commit those collective funds to our mission. This means your donations go further and will exponentially unlock the potential of people like Lelita, Elenita and others.

Lack of clean water and sanitation along with hygiene-related disease kill nearly ONE MILLION people every year.

Invest in the Future

The lack of clean water is not just a thirst issue.

  • The little food communities do have cannot be properly digested because of dehydration which leads to malnourishment.
  • Without water for proper sanitation, millions face preventable health issues and disease.
  • Malnourished, sick and starving children cannot gain an education for their future.
  • Starving adults cannot work to provide for their families which merely compounds poverty issues that prevent gaining access to water.

Provide water and you provide healthProvide water and you provide nutrition. Provide water and you help stimulate the economy of an impoverished community. Provide water and you provide the sanitation that helps prevent the spread of disease.

  • Millions of families spend more than 20% of their income on water.  
  • Women are forced to walk long hours to get water for their families.
  • Many of these families can get a water or sanitation solution in their home for a fraction of their annual water costs.  

Water.org has developed a program of supplying small, affordable loans for water connections and toilets.

Through WaterCredit, Water.org is making these water and sanitation loans accessible to those who need them the most. They work with partners to make WaterCredit self-sustaining with a system that will last long after Water.org’s involvement ends.  And, as these loans are repaid, the funds can be used to empower other families with access to safe water and sanitation.

One Million Goal has partnered with Water.Org in support of the WaterCredit program.  Your contribution through One Million Goal will not only help families now but will help families in the future. Contribute to the OMG fundraiser with Water.org today.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for investing in the future!

Finance for water is an investment in the future

This photo and story are shared from one of the organizations we partner with - Water.org
India

Population of 1.3 Billion   

769 Million lack access to improved sanitation

58% of the total population lives on less than U.S. $3.10 per day

Access to safe water stands in the way of millions of kids around the world and a bright future. Dirty water disproportionately impacts children. More than 500,000 children die needlessly every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. And, the loss of 443 million school days each year due to water-related illness limits the potential of these young minds. Water.org is working to break down the barriers that stand between these kids, their families and safe water. 

Through decades of research Water.org has discovered there are millions of families spending more than 20% of their income on water. They are caught in a cycle of poverty, unable to afford permanent access to water in their homes and beholden to water merchants who charged exorbitant fees.

The truth is that many of these families can get a water or sanitation solution in their home for a fraction of their annual water costs. All they need is access to affordable financing to make this a reality. We believe that if we can provide people with small, affordable loans for water connections and toilets, we can transform and empower people to participate in their own solution - allowing them to define their own futures and those of future generations.

ALFONSO CORTES SCHOOL

Posted on Mon Jul 31 2017



The 1,500 students of this school are forced to drink water that is often contaminated with harmful pollutants and bacteria. As a result, these children suffer a multitude of health problems -- a consequence that prevents them from achieving the education they want and deserve.  With money raised, we were able to purchase and install a Santitron Ultraviolet Filtration system by UV Atlantic.  This two-stage system first filters the water with a microbial pre-filter. The water is then sterilized with UV light which kills any bacteria or parasites making the water safe to drink.
