Runway for Water

The Season's
Hottest Runway

Isn't actually a runway at all. It's a walk that billions of women make for water. This Fashion Week, we're debuting a film shot in Maharashtra, India. The models are real women and girls who walk that route every day. And their accessory, the water jug, is their family's lifeline.

Water Rights are
Women's Rights

From a young age, every aspect of a woman's life – schooling, physical safety, health, economic opportunity, safe childbirth – is impacted by the lack of access to safe water and sanitation.

Water For People is taking on the global water crisis and changing millions of lives through water, sanitation, and hygiene services for women in India and around the globe. Together, we can make a difference.

Impact on Women And Girls

Women collectively spend
200 million hours
each day collecting water.

In 7 out of 10 households without water access, women and girls are primarily responsible for water collection.

In some rural regions of India, women can take up to six trips a day, walking 6,570 miles a year for water.

Join us. Together we can end the walk for water.
