International non-governmental organisation (NGO) WaterAid has joined Gap Inc., and USAID’s (the United States Agency for International Development) Women + Water Global Development Alliance (W+W Alliance) as an implementing partner. The Alliance, a five-year project forged in 2017, aims to improve and sustain the health and well-being of women working in the apparel industries of developing countries, first focused on India. Women make up approximately 80 percent of garment workers globally, with a large majority based in developing manufacturing nations which face challenges meeting the health and economic demands of their populations.
