World Water Day is about raising awareness of the global water crisis and the millions of people living without access to properly built latrines and hand-washing and shower facilities. During the COVID-19 crisis, the World Health Organization is asking Water to Thrive and other WASH organizations to support more frequent hand-washing by improving hand-washing facilities and using comprehensive WASH training techniques. Thankfully, this is already part of the Water to Thrive model. Every community we serve receives comprehensive WASH training, learning how to best preserve their new water source and how to improve personal hygiene. We work with communities to build new pit latrines and tippy-tap hand-washing stations.

Our goal for World Water Day is to provide clean water for 322 people AND have 100 people join our new monthly giving program, the Water Guardians. Right now we have an unprecedented opportunity to come together as a united global body. WASH (water access, sanitation and hygiene) training is the first line of defense during pandemics like COVID-19. With your help, we can continue to build wells and provide WASH training to our beneficiaries in East Africa, who are among the most vulnerable to this illness. Through your generosity, Water to Thrive can save lives.
