In the slums of the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka, playtime can be a rarity. But when one woman installed a water system for her family and neighbors, her courtyard filled with smiles and laughter. Read Shefaly's story linked to our profile and #givewatercredit for time to play!

For families in Peru, Water.org's WaterCredit empowers families to finance the construction of water taps, toilets, and bathrooms; simple solutions that give them the health and time for what many may take for granted. Just as people around the world have financed a vehicle or house for their families, a loan to establish safe water or a toilet at home is the only way some of the world’s poor can get access to these basic necessities. @Water puts the power of water directly into the hands of the people who need it, empowering them with access to small loans so they can do more in life than walk for water...like play.

Access to safe water and sanitation has improved in Peru in recent years, yet significant shortfalls in both public infrastructure and household facilities remain. With a total population of 31 million Peruvians, four million lack access to safe water and eight million lack access to improved sanitation. Our work is changing lives in this country, and giving kids time to play. #givewatercredit for #timetoplay

If you get our email newsletter, you'd know we're all about the rad dads changing the world for their families. This week, we've highlighted this rad dad. His name is Thy. Thy and his wife make their humble, thatch-roofed home in a small village that sits about 30 miles from the Bay of Thailand. While the sea is near, potable drinking water is not. So, as is the custom in many developing countries, finding and collecting water becomes the responsibility of women and girls. Rather than work or attend school on time, they are charged with spending up to six hours each day making sure there is water in the home. Thy views this as unfair and unnecessary. He believed his daughters were too smart and capable to spend their time, and risk their safety, collecting water. Despite his limited income as a cattle farmer, Thy was determined to get his family easy access to safe water. #givewatercredit for empowering Thy to give his family safe water at home.

From where we work in Indonesia, two boys enjoy an afternoon of play among their family’s garden. They pedaled out from the crops to pose for this photo, and immediately after, they chased friends to a nearby stream to sail small paper boats they made that morning. This day was made possible because their mother was empowered to give them safe water at home. #Givewatercredit for time to play.
