For the first time in history, nine in ten people around the world now have safe, clean water to drink. But we can’t stop there.

There’s more work to be done before we reach everyone everywhere with clean, safe water. One family, one village, one country at a time.

Meet Esnart

She is the one in ten that still lives without access to safe water. Esnart lives in Vimphere, a village in Malawi where there are no taps, just a filthy waterhole that dries up in the dry season.

Everyday Esnart gets up at 3am, straps her baby to her back and goes into the night to collect filthy water for her and her son before it runs out. She climbs the steep bank carefully so as not to spill a drop.

And when she’s home, she lovingly feeds it to her baby, hoping it won’t make him ill this time.

We’ve seen what the people of Vimphere are made of: perseverance, strength and optimism.  

This winter, you can show us what you’re made of too. Help us make history – help us reach the one in ten. We’re so close!
