Project Description

Providing safe clean Water, Hygiene and Sanitation.

According to the new WHO/UNICEF Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) report, 2.1 billion people worldwide lack access to safe, readily available water at home, and 4.4 billion lack safely managed sanitation. People around the world are coming together to join the virtual Climate Chain in support of children affected by climate change. Join us.

Over the next 10 years, climate change will affect around 175 million children a year. Global climate change is most apparent around issues related to water.

1 in 3 people worldwide do not have access to improved sanitation, and nearly 1 billion people around the world go in the open.

For millions of people around the globe, water, sanitation and hygiene conditions have improved. Still, in 2015, 663 million people are using unsafe drinking water.

Clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices are essential for the survival and development of children. Today, there are around 2.4 billion people who do not use improved sanitation, and 663 million who do not have access to improved water sources.

Without these basic needs, the lives of millions of children are at risk. For children under five, water- and sanitation-related diseases are one of the leading causes of death. Every day, over 800 children die from preventable diseases caused by poor water, and a lack of sanitation and hygiene.

UNICEF’s water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) team works in over 100 countries worldwide to improve water and sanitation services, as well as basic hygiene practices. Last year, UNICEF’s efforts provided nearly 14 million people with clean water and over 11 million with basic toilets.

In times of crisis children are particularly vulnerable; UNICEF responds and provides emergency relief to those in need.

We educate our village communities about the importance of household hygiene, personal hygiene, and sanitation through outreaches. We also have partnerships with local schools, encouraging children to adopt personal habits of hygiene, and to help their schools and their families adopt small sanitation measures like having ‘tippy-taps’ outside of latrines. Tippy taps are locally-constructed hand washing stations that make it easy for people to follow good hygiene practices.
