UN Sustainable Development Goals
According to the UN, in 2019, 785 million people still lack a basic drinking water service and over 1/3 of primary schools lack basic drinking, sanitation and hygiene services. LifeStraw is committed to tackling these challenges by providing more than 1,000 rural schools with sustainable access to safe drinking water. LifeStraw’s programs also teach health hygiene and sanitation practices and provide continuous follow-up and education utilizing full time local in-country staff. LifeStraw also works with non-profit, government and international organizations all over the world to enable individuals, families and communities to access safe drinking water through the provision of LifeStraw products, and safe water education.
