What can you accomplish in four hours? In four hours, I’ll have completed my morning workout, driven to the office, attended several meetings, sent many emails, called my Mom, and most likely eaten another breakfast.
Lots of women and girls in the developing world spend four hours a day collecting water. That’s time away from school, family, work and play.
That’s why this year, Water For People has set out to change the way millions of women and girls spend their time.
Please join us by donating to the Time Well Spent $2 Million Challenge.
If you do, you’ll be helping children like Josephine, a 10-year-old girl living in the district of Rulindo, Rwanda. Until recently, she made a two-hour trek down and then up a steep mountainside to fetch water twice a day. When fistfights started breaking out at the heavily trafficked spring, her mother joined her for protection. For Josephine, this is four hours EVERY DAY that she could have been in school, studying, or playing and just being a kid. For Mom, it’s 28 hours a week that she spends away from her family and home.
Will you join us in supporting Water For People by donating now to make girls like Josephine’s TIME WELL SPENT?
We need your help today. I hope you can join us in the adventure toward Everyone, Forever in the places where we work. It’s ambitious and we can’t do it with you.
