The Issue of Gender and Water

Within our own private circle, it is sometimes difficult to think how an issue may exist for someone else. One such issue, which is currently being considered by private organizations and agencies is the fact that accessing water is a gender issue, which negatively impacts women, for many cultures.

In a recent story, Sew Much Better Now,  provided by Water.org, we see how one woman was unable to provide sufficiently for her family, since much of her time was spent in sourcing water for her family.

I hope that the above story will allow many more persons to understand the issue of gender and water, and be able to make a difference in some way even if they have to donate through Water.org to do so.
