GIRLS AND WOMEN ARE THE “WATER HAULERS”
o the developing world.On average, women and girls in developing countries walk nearly our miles a day,carrying ve gallons o water, to supply the amily needs or water or drinking,cooking, washing, irrigating crops, and watering livestock. This enormous taskgreatly reduces the time available or other productive work such as household tasks,gardening, or engaging in income-generating activities. The time taken to collect waterhas a signicant negative impact on girls’ education—girls may miss classes or arriveat school exhausted because they have already spent hours walking to collect water ortheir amily’s daily needs.
