Raise awareness posting how precious water is in your daily life
We want to ensure equal access to clean water everywhere and to help as many people as possible. This means really understanding every issue in every region, because water issues are very different all over the world. From not enough water in Ghana, to a lack of access to reliable clean water in Mexico. The lives of communities are affected in very different ways, depending on where they live.
As Acqua for Life discovers what it is like to live in these water scarce regions, we want to share our knowledge and understanding with as many people as possible. Find out what we have discovered so far.
