Kalabash Ghana


Globally, the water crisis is ranked No. 1 because 1.8 billion people around the world lack access to safe water. Globally, 2.6 billion people presently have no access to basic sanitation. Globally the equivalent of nine (9) jumbo jet planes crashing every two hours represents the number of deaths directly related to lack of safe drinking water and sanitation. Globally, every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. Globally, eighty-two percent (82%) of the people who don’t have access to “improved” water and sanitation live in rural areas, and over forty percent (40%) of these people live in sub-Saharan Africa. Globally, the people who lack water and sanitation are far more than the people who have a mobile phone.

Globally, the number of hours KLM takes to fly from Netherlands to Ghana is the number of hours women spend collecting water for their households.

The good news is that, globally, there is 150% profit on every dollar invested to bring safe drinking water and sanitation to those who lack.

Globally, an estimated 10 billion dollars is needed annually over the next fifteen years to achieve the SDG target on water and sanitation. This amount is less than 1% of world military spending in 2015, one-third of the estimated global spending on bottled water, or about as much as Europeans spend on ice cream each year.
