P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water Program

Summary: 

“In some parts of the world, we take for granted the availability of clean water. People in countries like Mexico, Indonesia and Kenya struggle with finding clean water to drink. And without clean drinking water, it’s much harder to keep their children healthy, have them get an education and provide a better life for their families. Our goal in partnering with National Geographic is to share these stories about the power of clean water and to inspire others to make a difference and become a part of the solution.”

– Marc Pritchard, Chief Brand Officer and Community Impact Executive Sponsor

Understanding The Impacts Of Water . . . And Doing Something About It

Article

When a 12-year-old girl in the United States is thirsty, she likely goes to the kitchen and turns on the tap. And she probably does so without thinking twice about it.

But that’s not the case for children everywhere. A 12-year-old girl in Uganda, for example, may travel by foot for more than an hour to collect water, which often isn’t clean, to share with her family for drinking, personal hygiene, cooking and cleaning. Both the trek and the quality of water can be dangerous.
