"Thousands have lived without love,
not one without water".
W. H. Auden
REACHING FOR WATER
• WORLDWIDE, 780 MILLION PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO
• AN ESTIMATED 2.5 BILLION PEOPLE LACK ACCESS TO
IMPROVED SANITATION (MORE THAN 35% OF THE WORLD’S
• ACCORDING TO THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND
UNICEF, REGIONS WITH THE LOWEST COVERAGE OF
“IMPROVED” SANITATION IN 2006 WERE SUB-SAHARAN
AFRICA (31%), SOUTHERN ASIA (33%) AND EASTERN ASIA
• IN 2006, 7 OUT OF 10 PEOPLE WITHOUT ACCESS TO
IMPROVED SANITATION WERE RURAL INHABITANTS.
• ACROSS ALL 24 COUNTRIES EXAMINED, INCLUDING SIERRA
LEONE, MALAWI AND NIGER, MORE GIRLS WERE TASKED
WITH WATER COLLECTION THAN BOYS. WOMEN WERE ALSO
THE PRIMARY WATER COLLECTOR IN ALL COUNTRIES.
• AT LEAST 17 MILLION WOMEN AND
GIRLS IN AFRICA ARE ALSO MORE
LIKELY TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
COLLECTING WATER FOR THEIR
FAMILY, MAKING IT DIFFICULT FOR
THEM TO ATTEND SCHOOL DURING
SCHOOL HOURS, WHICH INCREASES
THEIR RISK OF SEXUAL ABUSE,
MANY WOMEN CANNOT EARN AN
INCOME BECAUSE OF THE TIME
AND ENERGY IT TAKES TO COLLECT
• PEOPLE ALSO HAVE TO CONTEND
WITH WATER-BORNE DISEASES LIKE
SCHISTOSOMIASIS, AN INFECTION
CAUSED BY PARASITIC WORMS
LIVING IN FRESH WATER.
• THE DAILY PRACTICE CAUSES
MUSCULOSKELETAL DAMAGE, SOFT
TISSUE DAMAGE AND CAN LEAD TO
EVERY DROP COUNTS
Being able to secure the Hydro
Reach bag on one’s shoulders
means that not a single drop of
water has to spill.
This makes gathering water a
much faster and not a single
drop has to be spilled.
• BECAUSE OF ITS INTRICATE DESIGN, THE HYDRO REACH
WATER BAG ALLOWS ANYONE TO CARRY WATER OVER THEIR
SHOULDERS OVER LONG DISTANCES HANDS FREE. THIS FREES
UP THE WATER TRANSPORTER IN SUCH A WAY GIVING THEM
THE FREEDOM TO CARRY A CHILD, CLIMB, CARRY A BASKET
OF FRUIT, ETC..
• THE UNIQUE SADDLE DESIGN ALSO MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO
STACK MORE THAN ONE HYDRO REACH BAG ON TOP OF A
DONKEY A COW OR A GOAT.
• THE HYDRO REACH PROJECT WILL FIND HYDRO REACH BAGS
FOR FAMILIES IN NEED OF TRANSPORTING WATER ALL OVER
• VOLUNTEERS WILL TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT VILLAGES IN HIGH
NEED AREAS SHOWING PEOPLE HOW TO MAINTAIN THE
BAG PROPERLY, AS WELL AS PHYSICALLY FILLING UP THE BAGS
AT THE WATER SOURCE THROUGHOUT THE PURIFICATION
• GETTING CLEAN FRESH WATER HAS NEVER BEEN EASY.
MOST OFTEN PEOPLE HAVE TO CROSS RIVERS, CLIMB STEEP
HILLS OR GO DOWN DEEP HILLS.
ATTACHED TO HYDROREACH BAG THERE IS A MINI WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM THAT CAN PROVIDE 0.1 MICRON ABSOLUTE FILTRATION, REMOVING 99.9999% OF ALL BACTERIA SUCH AS CHOLERA, E.COLI, SALMONELLA. REMOVING ALSO 100% OF MICROPLASTIC.
OUR MISSION IS TO
BRING THE HYDRO
REACH TO AT LEAST
THREE VILLAGES PER
YEAR IN DIFFERENT
PARTS OF THE WORLD.
PROVIDING AT LEAST
300 HYDRO REACH
BAGS FOR ONE
VILLAGE CAN HELP
FRESH WATER FOR
QUITE SOME TIME.
