“Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right” Unicef and WHO estimate that 88% of diarrhoeal disease can be attributed to unsafe water supply inadequate sanitation and hygiene. With 40% of the worlds population lacking basic sanitation facilities, and over 1 billion people drink ing unsafe water, providing improved access to safe affordable water supply and sanitation is a key component of the Millennium Development Goals. Lack of access to clean water and basic sanitation is a clear determinant of poverty. It is responsible for 1.6 million preventable child deaths each year Millions more suffer from waterborne illnesses such as Cholera, Typhoid, Worms and Diarrhoea. At present over a billion people have to travel a significant distance from their home in order to collect clean water. Women and children are forced to spend large parts of their day fetching water. It is tiresome and time consuming. Improved access to safe water and sanitation not only improves health but saves time, energy and enhances livelihood opportunities. , , .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
