Through further research, we began to understand that unsafe water effects more than just education. Health concerns place a disproportionate amount of pressure on a government whose resources are already limited when dealing with such problems. Unsafe water severely inhibits the economic growth of a country because time that could be better used towards producing goods for sale is unavailable due to illness or fetching water from contaminated water sources located miles away. In Africa alone, people spend over 40 billion hours every year, walking for water. Poverty is directly related to the accessibility of clean drinking water- without it, the chances of breaking out of the poverty trap are extremely slim.
