Improve girls’ and women’s access to resources ― land, clean energy, water, and sanitation ― and they will be healthier, wealthier, and safer.
Investing in girls and women creates a ripple effect that yields multiple benefits, not only for individual women, but also for families, communities, and countries. When women have secure land rights, their earning can increase significantly, impacting their ability to open bank accounts, save money, build credit, and claim leadership roles. Solutions focused on access to water, sanitation, and household energy can better engage half the population and break the cycle of poverty.Download the Infographic

WaterAid explores the solutions and impact that women’s leadership in water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) will have on gender equality within the home and community.
