Water, Sanitation and Hygiene

Surveys from 45 developing countries show that women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection in the vast majority (76%) of households. This is time not spent working at an income-generating job, caring for family members, or attending school. A study by the World Bank and the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre of community water and sanitation projects in 88 communities found that projects designed and run with the full participation of women are more sustainable and effective than those that do not. By acting as a voice for the full inclusion of women in water and sanitation projects, Strong Women, Strong World has the opportunity to increase health and opportunity.
