What we aim to solve New!

LearnToLive exists because 783 million people do not have access to clean water, almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation, and 30,000 children under 5 die from avoidable diseases every day. These numbers are overwhelming and almost inconceivable. LearnToLive contributes to lowering these numbers while specifically designing our programs in ways that enrich and train our volunteers to be globally conscious citizens, to continue our mission long after they return home.
