Power 2 People

Giving families in Nigeria fresh water

Why are we doing this?

63.2 million people do not have access to clean water and 112 million people are left with no acceptable sanitation. Every minute, every day, people suffer and lives are lost needlessly because of a lack of safe water and sanitation. 500,00 children die every year from water-related diseases. That is around 1,400 children each day. Not only do we need to help the adults in Nigeria, but we need to also help the children who have a long future ahead of them or at least they should. The unsafe water and poor sanitation of the water can cause diseases and hurt their health.Another reason is the education.Children are absent from school because they are either sick or collecting water for the day. The water crisis has affect on ones livelihood because it reduces the time people spend earning money or growing food.

Our mission

Our mission is to reach families in Nigeria that are in need of water. You will be able to donate to the family of your choice by looking at their story and background. You can donate $25-$30 a month to supply a bucket of water and education to a family of their choice that are in need. The two families will be able to communicate with each other.
