1. In Tanzania, 17 percent of people have no place to wash their hands. Without hand washing at critical times, like after using the bathroom and before eating, people are much more likely to become sick. Another 35 percent of the population have a hand washing facility but no reliable source of safe water or soap.
  2. Women and children traditionally bear the weight of the water problems in their communities, waking early to gather water from faraway sources and making several trips each day. Of those women and children carrying water, data shows that they are likely gathering it from unsafe sources like rivers, canals, ponds, and unprotected structures like hand-dug wells and natural springs.
