World Water Day 2016: Partnering with rural communities increases access to safe water

If you believe everyone should have access to clean drinking water, help Kiva and its partners like Evidence Action and People’s Forum by lending here!

About 1 in 10 people on the planet (that’s 663 million) have no access to clean water, according to World Health Organization and UNICEF. Kiva has been working to support its partners, such as Evidence Action and People’s Forum, to provide safe drinking water, save lives and scale sustainable solutions. None of this would be possible without the support of Kiva’s incredible lenders around the world and we want to thank you this World Water Day!
