Clean water and decent toilets will help girls reach their potential.

Girls have everything it takes to succeed. With clean water nearby and decent toilets at school, they can focus on their learning – and thrive.   

771 million people don't have clean water close to home.

This affects girls and women most. Until recently, Rekha spent hours collecting water in Kavre, Nepal. Today, she’s got more time to study thanks to new taps and toilets.

37%
of schools worldwide don't have decent toilets.

In this unique art commission, WaterAid teamed up with RANKIN to lift the lid on a sanitation crisis that’s affecting millions of girls in Nepal and beyond.

90%
of all natural disasters around the world are water-related.

Nepal is especially vulnerable to climate change. Unseasonal rains cause mudslides, damaging water supplies, making it harder for women who must usually collect water.
