  • Social Justice League: The Social Justice League is holding our second annual We Walk for Water campaign on Thursday, May 23rd. More than 840 million people do not have access to clean water. More than 260 million people, mostly young girls, have the daily task of collecting water from distant sources—time that could be spent in school or earning a livelihood. By cutting the time and distance to fetch water in half, girls’ school attendance increases by 12 percent. Poor sanitation and contaminated water can lead to diseases like cholera, hepatitis A and typhoid. But with access to clean water, families are able to send their girls to school, watch their crops flourish and improve their personal health. Did you know that for just $25 you can provide one person with access to clean water for life? Join us in providing water for just one person at a time.
