World Water Day, celebrated annually on March 22, draws attention to the global water crisis and the importance of water to public health.
Organizations fighting for water sanitation use the day to spotlight their best efforts, many of which take place in the social space. This year, we took a look at four organizations doing great work to spread the message of sustainable safe water access.
The U.N. created World Water Day in 1993. This month, it announced that the water component of its millennium development goals — to halve the number of people without access to clean drinking water — has been achieved, well in advance of its 2015 deadline.
