SURGE FOR WATER
SURGE’s educational and awareness programs reach thousands of people in our community every year. The “Films and Cocktails” series engage our audience in exclusive settings. Our “Just for Kids” initiative partners with local organizations to educate and empower youth; and the program shows how their local action has global impact. The “Surge Youth Summit” offers a unique, interactive experience for Chicagoland youth that will both educate and empower them to make an impact on the global water crisis.
OUR WORLD TODAY:
– 1 in 6 of us do not have access to safe water
– 5 in 10 of us live on $1 to $2 a day
– 9,800 of us die each day as a result of water-borne diseases; most of these victims are children less than 5 years old
