Tini Lux is partnered with Initiative Eau, an NGO dedicated to improving the safety and quality of drinking water services to developing urban areas.
Safe water is a basic human right
In 2010, the United Nations declared its recognition of "the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life." While significant progress has been made, around the world more than:
663 million people
are without access to clean, safe drinking water.
2.4 billion people
are without access to improved sanitation facilities.
Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia continue to be disproportionately burdened with this lack of capacity. Lack of clean water and adequate sanitation is responsible for high rates of water-borne disease, for nearly 1,000 children die each day from preventable water and sanitation related diseases.
