What is World Water Day?

World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of clean water and advocating for the sustainable management of clean safe water and sanitation. This day is an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.

On World Water Day, One Water is raising awareness about The One Foundation’s clean water and sanitation programmes.

The Foundation’s mission is to support sustainable water and sanitation services to change lives in some of the world’s poorest communities. The Foundation work’s in both rural and urban environments, varying their approach to meet local needs and focusing on providing clean water and sanitation as a sustainable service for all.

Every One Water product sold funds clean water projects in areas that need it most. So far, we have helped The One Foundation raise over £20 million, changing the lives of over 3.8 million people.

Beneficiary Story

Beatrice

Thanks to this programme, a new tap stand in Beatrice’s community in Rwanda was installed, so villagers no longer have to walk to open water sources and collect dirty water. Beatrice says:

“Children now go to school regularly, without absenteeism and delays, like it was when they had to go and fetch water before and after school”.

Beatrice used the time she saved to learn to weave baskets and mats which she now sells to generate additional income for her family.
