Water Quality Issue
Globally, one in nine people uses drinking water from unimproved and unsafe sources according to UNESCO. Additionally, UNICEF explains that women and girls spend 200 million hours everyday collecting water, which is an enormous waste of time. In fact, the UN's Sustainable Development Goal number 6 calls for universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030. Mission Tomorrow hopes to help accomplish this goal through the Clean Water For All initiative. While these women and girls engage in collecting water, they are not able to contribute to society in a meaningful and positive way. As a result, they spend much of their childhood away from school and other social activities, which also adds to India's illiteracy problem. Furthermore, the families of these individuals are not able to get out of the cycle of poverty as a result of this issue. Therefore, Mission Tomorrow is committed to partnering with organizations that have the mission of improving access to quality water for these underprivileged individuals.
After deep research, we discovered a solution to this urgent issue that can drastically transform the lives of individuals negatively affected by a lack of access to clean water through a product called LifeStraw. LifeStraw is a portable water filtration system, which purifies the water that passes through it as individuals drink utilizing the straw. In fact, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) verifies that the apparatus removes a minimum of 99.99% of waterborne bacteria and pathogens from a source of unsanitary water. Furthermore, the LifeStraw contains no moving parts or batteries, which means that the device never expires. For many people who live in rural areas and do not have access to any source of pure water, the LifeStraw serves as a beneficial and sustainable solution that significantly reduces these individuals' risk of acquiring water-borne illnesses.
Mission Tomorrow's goal is to raise a substantive amount of money to purchase LifeStraws for underprivileged individuals who lack access to clean water in an effort to tremendously reduce the number of people who acquire water-borne diseases. Having access to these resources will allow these individuals to spend their time bringing meaningful contributions to their societies in the form of attending school and obtaining productive income-producing jobs. Additionally, this device would offer a significant solution to people who carry heavy pots on their heads for 2-3 kilometers at a time with a risk of enduring spinal injuries and bad posture. Furthermore, Mission Tomorrow will follow up with these individuals through informative sessions to ensure they are equipped to serve their communities better by providing clean water. Thorough removing a major issue in these people's lives, we are allowing them to grow!
