Why Water?

By 2025, an estimated 1.8 billion people will live in areas plagued by water scarcity. Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. 43% of those deaths are children under five years old. (Source: Charity Water). It’s not right!

Champion the Right to Water

Fundraise for a Community Water Well

Engage your school in a shared global leadership experience. A community well is a game changer for the communities Change for Children works with in  Nicaragua. A well costs $10,000 and provides hundreds of people with safe water for generations.

By connecting with Change for Children, your students have the capacity,  and incredible opportunity, to help others realize their fundamental human right to water!
