Winter 2021: We need your help to keep girls in school


This Winter, we are on a mission. A mission to keep girls in school. A tap close to home helps a girl do just that, because instead of spending the prime hours of the day trying to find water, she can make the morning chore of collecting water a matter of minutes and then be on her way to school and all that education provides. 

We have been consistently wowed by the crypto community's commitment to clean water projects - can we count on you to help keep girls in school?

How many girls will you keep in school today?

Lack of water keeps girls from school and keeps generations of women trapped in a cycle of poverty. This isn't an isolated problem either, women and girls collectively spend 200 million hours a day collecting water. Time that they cannot get back, time they cannot use to invest in themselves or their families, whether through education, working or starting a business. We want to change this. It costs $25 to equip someone with clean water. This Winter we need your help to equip 800 students with clean water today!

How to donate cryptocurrency [VIDEO]


Why donate in crypto?

This helps donors minimise their tax obligations while also supporting causes that are important to them.  WaterAid is a 501(c) 3 entity, registered in the USA and all donations are tax deductible as is permitted by law.
