Women and Girls Making a Difference

Lifeline believes that cultivating the untapped energies of female leaders and micro-entrepreneurs presents the surest
path to sustaining water infrastructure, effectuating positive behavioral change and uplifting rural communities.


Lifeline is easing the burden women face in performing household duties – like cooking and collecting
water and firewood – and educating them on income generating activities so they can maximize the use of the
time they have saved.
