The 200 million hours mothers spend every day collecting water is a colossal waste of their valuable time.


When water is not on-premises and needs to be collected, it’s our mothers who are mostly paying with their time and lost opportunities.

When water is not piped to the home the burden of fetching it falls disproportionately on mothers. A study that was carried out revealed that when the collection time is more than 30 minutes, an estimated 3.36 million children and 13.54 million adult females, especially mothers, were responsible for water collection. 

The UN estimates that mothers who collected water spent 54 minutes on average, while men spent only 6 minutes.

For mothers, the opportunity costs of collecting water are high, with far-reaching effects. It considerably shortens the time they have available to spend with their families, on child care, other household tasks, or even in leisure activities. For both boys and girls, water collection can take time away from their education and sometimes even prevent their attending school altogether.

Collection of water can affect the health of the whole family, and particularly of children. When water is not available at home, even if it is collected from a safe source, the fact that it has to be transported and stored increases the risk that it is faecally contaminated by the time it is drunk.

This in turn increases the risk of diarrhoeal disease, which is the fourth leading cause of death among children under 5, and a leading cause of chronic malnutrition, or stunting, which affects 159 million children worldwide. More than 300,000 children under 5 die annually from diarrhoeal diseases due to poor sanitation, poor hygiene, or unsafe drinking water – over 800 per day.
