  • WHO has found that introducing WASH into a community reduces waterborne diseases by 67%.
  • Lifewater International found that after 5 years in a community in Kenya where WASH was implemented, child mortality due to waterborne disease went from being the number 2 killer to not being in the top 10 killers of children.
  • Lifewater does not operate in Rwanda, leaving communities without safe water sources and life saving WASH training.
  • In 2008 only 65% of adults could read.
  • More than 100,000 households are run by children. Most child run households have no way to make a living and no adults to teach them.
