3.4.1 Improve WASH services

Women and girls often spend many hours a day fetching water. Improving WASH services creates opportunity for women to do other things with their time and empowers them by freeing them from the daily drudgery of water collection. It would give them time for other more productive purposes, such as working to bring in income or participating in social, political and community activities.
