REACHING FOR WATER

ibasyo-8_edited.jpg

​• WORLDWIDE, 780 MILLION PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO

AN IMPROVED WATER SOURCE.

• AN ESTIMATED 2.5 BILLION PEOPLE LACK ACCESS TO

IMPROVED SANITATION (MORE THAN 35% OF THE WORLD’S

POPULATION).

• 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

(65%).

• 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

WATER.

• 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

EARLY ARTHRITIS.

• 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

THE WORLD.

• 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

PROCESS.

• GETTING CLEAN FRESH WATER HAS NEVER BEEN EASY.

MOST OFTEN PEOPLE HAVE TO CROSS RIVERS, CLIMB STEEP

HILLS OR GO DOWN DEEP HILLS.

 

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.
