In Chad, access to water means a brighter future for the most vulnerable children

Water is the source of life for all humans. Education is the source of hope for millions of children in Chad. Yet, in this Sahel country, one in two children does not attend primary school and only half of the population has access to safe drinking water. On March 22, #WorldWaterDay focuses attention on a natural resource that all our lives and livelihoods depend on. It is a day to be inspired and take action to make a difference for those who can’t take water for granted.

#WorldWaterDay is an opportunity for UNICEF to call for bigger action around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation and promoting hygiene awareness. We will continue our work reaching the most vulnerable children making progress towards achieving universal access to water and education for all.
