World Water Day 2015: 10 years of Stirring Up Change and Transforming Lives with Clean Water
March 22 is a special day for the P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program – we celebrate World Water Day and the transformative impact that clean water has on children, their families and entire communities. We take a moment to thank our partners along with the individuals and organizations around the world working to provide and protect this essential and life-changing resource.
Over the past 10 years, we have been inspired by the stories of the people we have met with our partners in our collaborative efforts to help provide clean water with P&G packets in more than 75 countries. Many of their stories we have told through this blog and they share the same themes. When people have access to clean water, it changes lives. Clean water keeps children healthy so they can go to school and adults healthy so they can work and earn income to support their families. It helps entire communities move out of poverty.
