Over the past two years, global(x) has been vetting Lifewater as a potential global(x) Partner. Their strategy to address the global water crisis is unique, inspiring, and truly helps communities lift themselves out of poverty.
When people are healthy, children do not miss school, parents are able to work, moms do not have to walk long distances to access water, and lives are not lost because of waterborne diseases. It is staggering to think that every 60 seconds a child under the age of five dies from a preventable waterborne disease.
Lifewater is truly a best in class organization, and it has been a joy developing a relationship with them.
