In Malawi, countless women and girls are forced to make a difficult choice between attending school, pursuing work, or collecting water—a stark reality that shouldn’t exist. Access to safe water is not just about improving health; it’s about ensuring they have the time needed to complete their education, earn a livelihood, and aspire to brighter futures. This international women’s day we’re raising awareness of the key relationship between women and water and inspiring inclusion.

Amidst the global fight against COVID-19 and cholera, the significance of water has never been clearer. Pump Aid is taking part in the UN’s World Water Day campaign on 22nd March as part of our matchfunding campaign. Together, let’s amplify the value of water and support communities in need.
