  1. 1. By: Tieson Markland, Kurt Slattery, Leslie Van Ginder, Ryan Randall, and Derrick Atherton
  2. 2. THE QUENCH PROJECTThe goal of our project is to raise awareness about the tragic shortage of water in third-world countries and cut down on pollution in our environment.
  3. 3. STATISTICSApproximately 1 in 8 people in the world lack access to clean water.
  4. 4. • An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than a typical person in a developing country slum uses in a whole day.
  5. 5. • Waterborne diseases cause more than 1.4 million children’s deaths per year.• More than 2.2 million people die each year from poor water and sanitary conditions
  6. 6. BENEFITS OF DONATIONSFor every $1 invested in children- including money to improve access to clean water and sanitation- $7 will be saved in the cost of long- term public services.
  7. 7. CHANGES TO BE MADEIt is estimated that saving half of the water lost through leaky pipes and poorly maintained sewage networks could supply more than 90 million people with clean water. --(United Nation)
