Around the world, one in 10 people don’t have access to clean, safe water. Women and girls spend hours every day walking to collect water to drink or use for cooking and washing. And farmers lose crops when they can’t access water for irrigation.
With your support, MCC works with local partners to make sure people have access to clean water closer to their homes, both today and in the future. This includes projects such as:
- Constructing systems for collecting rainwater
- Digging wells and building dams for drinking or irrigation
- Training local people to construct and maintain water pumps
- Teaching sanitation and hygiene practices
