End Water Poverty2019-09-11T14:06:12+00:00

Africa Center for Advocacy is officially a member of End Water Poverty. 

Today, 2.1 billion people worldwide lack access to safely managed water, over twice as many lack access to safely managed sanitation services. This result forces women across the world to spend 200 million hours per day collecting water. Today, more people have mobile phones than have access to a safe toilet, one of their basic human rights.

Lack of access to safely managed and sustainable water and sanitation services has a negative impact on health outcomes – over 842,000 people die every year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe or dirty water and poor sanitation.
