NEW YORK – International non-governmental organisation (NGO) WaterAid has joined Gap Inc., and USAID’s (the United States Agency for International Development) Women + Water Global Development Alliance (W+W Alliance) as an implementing partner.

The Alliance, a five-year project forged in 2017, aims to improve and sustain the health and well-being of women working in the apparel industries of developing countries, first focused on India. Women make up approximately 80 per cent of garment workers globally, with a large majority based in developing manufacturing nations which face challenges meeting the health and economic demands of their populations.

WaterAid joins the anti-slavery CARE initiative, Water.org and the Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC) in encouraging the implementation of these practices which anchors on improving access to clean water across these regions.
