Celebrate International Day of the Girl


In 2011, the United Nations declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child. Join theworld in dedicating this day in 2016 to Gender Equality.


It starts with water.


For most of us, the idea that water could keep us from going to school, doing our job, and providing for our families is a strange one - even impossible. But for millions of women and girls around the world, that scenario is a day-to-day reality.

Here at Water For People, we witness girls in developing countries at a disadvantage from the start - they are more likely to suffer health problems, more liable to miss school, and more likely to marry and bear children at an early age. Water For People is on a mission to end this inequality, and we know it starts with water.
