Every day, millions of women and children in developing countries are forced to carry heavy loads of water for long distances to their homes, typically in heavy 20L (kg) containers balanced on their head.

Women and children on average walk 6 km each day carrying heavy buckets of water on their heads.
Women worldwide spend 200 million hours each day to collect their families' water.
The weight of water that women in Africa and Asia carry on their heads is commonly 20kg and when on their shoulders it's twice the weight.
The number of people who do not have access to clean water in Africa is equivalent to the total population of the United States (US) and Russia combined.
Carrying water is very difficult for young children
272 million school days are lost due to water collection each year.
