Global Womren’s Water Initiative
As water bearers and family caretakers, women and girls are disproportionately affected by the lack of access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Our newest project, Global Women’s Water Initiative (GWWI) is changing that.
Spearheaded by Echoing Green Fellow Gemma Bulos, GWWI trains women in East Africa to become WASH experts, trainers and social entrepreneurs, unleashing their leadership potential to build water technologies, generate income and solve some of their communities most pressing issues. Learn more about their astounding impact here.
