Time = Money

Your contribution grows even more because women and girls no longer spend much of their day hauling water. Instead, they can go to school, grow more food, join the workforce, and get involved with their community. That is why investments in water have an average of 8X** the economic benefit per dollar invested. All that productivity equals a huge boost to the local and global economy.
