Purified Water Changes Lives
Millions of people in poor and isolated communities worldwide have no option but to draw their cooking and drinking water from dirty streams. Consuming contaminated water causes almost-constant illness and, sometimes, death. Consider, for example:
Women and children, particularly girls, bear the primary responsibility for water collection in many households. This role often requires hours every day — time not spent working at an income-generating job, caring for family members or attending school.
Agua Viva sees the people in these communities as our brothers and sisters. That’s why we focus on bringing them health and hope through purified water. Introducing an accessible, sustainable purified water source eliminates water-borne disease, empowers women and provides each community with safe water for generations to come.
