Your Advocacy Efforts Pay Off

President Obama signs Girls Count Act into law!

After sailing through the Senate and the House of Representatives, on June 12, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Girls Count Act! That means we can work with our partners in the NGO community and the U.S. Government to implement this legislation, and help more children have access to birth registration.

Your support and action helped drive the unanimous Congressional support for this legislation, and kids around the world will benefit from it. Thank you!

Water for the World Act passed

The Water for the World Act (HR 2901) was signed into law in December 2014. This helps to address the needs of the nearly 2.5 billion people who do not have access to a toilet and the 750 million people who still live without safe drinking water.

Thank you for raising your voices with us to ensure that the world’s poorest and most marginalized do not have to live without water, sanitation and hygiene.
