Water & Sanitation

Clean water, a place to “poo,” and waste systems are not too much to ask.

Did you know?

  • Globally, 4.5 billion people don't have access to safe sanitation, such as using a toilet, and 2 billion people currently lack access to quality water.
  • Safe and clean drinking water helps children avoid deadly diseases, helps ensure girls can stay in school, and allows women to earn a living wage.
  • Around the world, students miss out on school every month because of their period.

Here's we can do

  • Educate yourself and others about why investing in adequate sanitation and clean water is so vital.
  • We need to call on and pressure countries like Nigeria to work to become open defecation free by investing in and prioritizing sanitation.
  • Tell governments around the world that #ItsBloodyTime we prioritize menstrual health.
