In Canada, most of us drink water without thinking, but what is it like for people who don’t have that luxury?

It takes Aysha, 13, eight hours to collect water every day, and it’s from a dirty, contaminated source.

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we provide better access to water, which improves health, frees up time for parents to generate income and for children to go to school — and that’s just the beginning.

In the meantime, watch the UNICEF video below to understand what it’s like to walk in Aysha’s shoes for a day.

Sharing is caring:


Children Believe works globally to empower children to dream fearlessly, stand up for what they believe in — and be heard. For 60+ years, we’ve brought together brave young dreamers, caring supporters and partners, and unabashed idealists. Together, we’re driven by a common belief: creating access to education — inside and outside of classrooms — is the most powerful tool children can use to change their world.
