WE's Technology Division is hosting a video game extravaganza, complete with DJ Sam George, Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros! Through this event, we hope to raise funds for WE Walk for Water to bring access to clean water to WE communities around the world.
Our event is happening on May 17th, but if you are unable to make it feel free to donate through our Crowdrise page!
- Over 840 million people worldwide are living without access to safe drinking water
- 2.4 billion people do not have access to basic sanitation services like toilets and latrines. Poor sanitation and contaminated water can lead to diseases like cholera, hepatitis A and typhoid
- More than 260 million people, mostly young girls, have the daily task of collecting water from distant sources - which takes them away from their education. By cutting the time and distance to fetch water in half, girls' school attendance increases by 12%
- Since the creation of WE's Water Pillar of Impact, more than 1 million people have improved access to clean water, health care and sanitation
