Commitment to Action

Reaching 1 New Person with Clean Water Every 10 Seconds

Commitment by

World Vision

In 2015, World Vision and partners committed to reaching one new person every ten seconds with clean water and sanitation in or before 2020, directly impacting 13 million people in 36 countries in Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, and Asia. To do so, World Vision will form committees in each of the communities in which they work which are responsible for managing the community’s water points, which may include traditional boreholes with a hand pump, mechanized boreholes with solar power, protected springs, and rainwater harvesting. As girls and women bear the burden of collecting water globally, World Vision will specifically engage women in leadership positions within the committees. This commitment scales upon World Vision’s 2011 commitment to provide water, sanitation and hygiene solutions in 10 African countries.
