Two-third of our planet is water. Yet, around 790 million people don’t have access to clean water and around 1.8 billion of us don’t have the privilege of adequate sanitation. This alarming statistic and global water crisis leads to a question of where are we going wrong and how can we fix it?
Safe drinking water is one of the essential survival resources for all living beings. However, this vast inequality in accessibility, availability and quality of water affects the health of 8 out of 10 people living in scarcity of water.
In the last 7 years, Crowdera Foundation has helped many organisations and individuals to solve their water crisis and has contributed to the Sustainable Development Goal of Clean Water And Sanitation.
One of the innovative campaigns that we are proud to support and help is the team of engineers from IIM Calcutta who came up with an innovative device HYGENOX to harvest rainwater to prevent water scarcity during droughts, which is also a sustainable way of recycling and reusing natural resources.
Fun quiz: Can you guess another SDG goal, HYGENOX is aligned with?

They also raised health and hygiene awareness in 50 government schools of Vidarbha region which is infamous for high farmer suicide rate due to this water crisis.
According to the ‘World Health Organization’, every year more than 3.4 million people die as a result of water related diseases, making it the leading cause of disease and death around the world.
We also helped the poor villages of Africa to get portable water service and built a borewell for tribals of Umerkote, Orissa.
More than 20 water issue related campaigns have been launched on our platform and we’d be more than happy to support the causes and the people who are working towards a world where basic fundamental rights are for EVERYONE!
