Onesimo Madyang, the headman of
Likitolo Village, says that the ancestors of Likitolo used to perform rituals to keep the local stream wet throughout the year. The next closest water source, a long distance from the village, put women and girls at risk of sexual violence.
Now, with a reliable well inside the village, Onesimo can rest easy. His villagers have safe, clean access to water all year long.

We’re already working on the
#4Liters campaign for this year - retooling the website, partnering with orbs and corps, and building messaging & media.
Check out these cool posters from NYC Dept. of Water during WWII!
#4Liters is a time to connect with struggling communities while changing the way we think about (and use) water forever.
These posters are a major inspiration for us right now! Cool, huh?

DIGDEEP’s George McGraw at TEDx Malibu
Water access may be the most difficult problem humans have ever faced. Still, Americans use hundreds of gallons of water every day without thinking.
If we can learn to love our water, it just might save our lives.
TEDX Malibu - George McGraw is a human rights lawyer, Executive Director of the DIGDEEP Right to Water Project in Los Angeles and the founder of 4liters.org

#ThirstyThursday : November 14, 2013
It’s #ThirstyThursday - and we’re headed to Navajo country to check on our Diné Water Access Project. We’ll be jamming to this on the way over.
Did you know that 40% of Navajo don’t have clean water or a toilet at home? That’s right here in the US. Contemplate.

On October 5th Newtown, CT held their second annual Walk4Water. Barely a year after a tragedy that threatened to tear them apart, Newtown families came together for a charity 5k to change the lives of communities in East Africa.
Participants carried gallons of dirty water - making the same trip many women and children face every day to bring water to their families.
The event raised over $10,000, and we’ll send 100% of that to the field. When projects funded by the W4W are complete, we’ll send the walkers and their supporters reports like this one.
They walk; we work; you watch the world change.
Want to organize your own Walk 4 Water? We can help! Email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We just wanted to make sure you didn’t miss

We’re about to start another week of #4Liters together, and we wanted to remind you of something:
100% - every dollar - of the funds you donate or raise for #4Liters is sent directly to a water project.

3. Compost to save water when cleaning up!
Ever thought about composting, but couldn’t quite get it together? Let #4Liters inspire you to start one today!
Running the garbage disposal wastes gallons of water every time you turn it on. Instead of scraping food remains into the sink, drop your organic scraps in a small compost bin under the sink.
1. Get ready the water-friendly way (without smelling bad).
Don’t want to turn into a HOT MESS while taking the 4Liter Challenge? Try some of these water saving tricks when getting ready in the morning:
