$100 gives a person clean water for life and helps start a self-help group that will enable a mother to lift her family out of poverty.

“We never really know what’s in our water, but we use it. we have no other choice.”

The story of "thick water" begins in the remote highlands of southern Ethiopia with a mother and water. Standing at the spot where she fills a 20 kg container with drinking water for her family, a mother describes the water. When translated, the water was referred to as "thick water". The water is thick because it's full of dirt, debris, and other contaminants, including dissolved waste from animals who share the same water source.

The story of #NOMORETHICKWATER begins with you and how you can transform lives today. It costs just $100 to give a person clean water for life and start a self-help group that will enable a mother to lift her family out of poverty.



Because clean water isn’t available in her community, a mother will carry 14,000 kg of disease-laden water a total of 1,000 km every year. In her lifetime, she will have spent the equivalent of 2 years just carrying dirty water that infects her children, ruins everyone’s health, and keeps her family trapped in poverty.

the solution


When clean water is available right in her community, a mother will invest saved time in learning skills that create a sustainable income to support her family. Her children will go to school. Her family will be healthy and poverty will be a thing of the past.
