What is World Water Day?
Every year in March, organizations and individuals across the world celebrate and honor World Water Day to focus attention on the importance of clean water and  the sustainable management of clean water sources. An international day of celebration for clean water was designated by The United Nations General Assembly for March 22, 1993 as the first World Water Day.

Now in Indianapolis, we are celebrating World Water Day by supporting a micro-enterprises program for young women in Nicaragua who train in clean water, hygiene and sanitation and deliver those services for their communities. Stay tuned for more information on our Facebook page about this innovative partnership with WaterAid America!

CURRENT PROJECT


"The participation of women and girls is essential if we are to achieve access to water, sanitation and hygiene education in Nicaragua. What's more, when women are empowered through microfinance projects they generate household income that supports the broader needs of their families. As a result, investments in safe water and sanitation bring wider and more profound changes to the lives of women, their children and generations that follow."
- Joshua Briemberg, Director, WaterAid Nicaragua
