This gift supports mana wāhine in Papua New Guinea.
Lack of clean water and sanitation in homes and schools is particularly hard for women and girls in Papua New Guinea. The time it takes to collect water every day impacts heavily on their daily workload, affecting their health, school attendance, and ability to study or earn money for their families. With this card you don’t only support the improved access to water and sanitation facilities, you also help to increase women’s participation in decision making processes by delivering gender awareness training to men and women.
“I would take a 20-litre container with my baby on my neck, and with a container I went down to the river to fetch water. My kids can drink water everyday. They have enough water to wash and go to school.”- Mila James
