CKI is excited to announce a new five-year signature project, in partnership with UNICEF, called WASH. WASH is the collective term for Water, Sanitation and Hygiene. WASH aims to provide education, awareness, and funding to supply clean drinking water and sanitation education to schools and children in underdeveloped regions. Since 1990, UNICEF and partners have played a key role as 2.6 billion people gained access to safe drinking water. Still, nearly 1,000 children die everyday due to a lack of safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene. Our signature project efforts will target Haiti’s emergency needs to reach 200,000 people in cholera-affected areas with a complete WASH response package; supporting emergency water access interventions for 70,000 people in drought-affected areas; and providing 60,000 internally displaced people with alternative sustainable sanitation strategies.
Our two anchor programs for WASH will be “Trick or Treat for UNICEF” and “March Water Madness”:
