A bucket of water for everybody, every day, is possible.

Water is life and when water flows well, wellness and wealth follow. Yet, currently one third of the people on earth do not have access to bathing water and therefore cannot adequately wash off their urine, faeces and menstrual blood.

These are the poorest people in the world and include nearly 1 billion people without access to sufficient drinking water or food, and 2.4 billion people who lack access to bathing water.

Add your name to petition to have June 22nd recognised as “World Bathing Day” so that we can raise awareness to the plight of these people and rally actions to create a world where bathing is possible for all.


Bathe The World Foundation

Founded in 2018 by Professor Marc Cohen, Charles Davidson, Franca Smarrelli, Ingo Schweder and Therese Kerr. The foundation’s mission is to explore and promote the benefits of bathing and provide access to clean flowing water through research, education, advocacy, awareness campaigns, events and the provision of bathing facilities.

One of the foundation’s key activities is supporting the annual 22 June World Bathing Day celebration, in particular using social media to raise awareness about the universal importance of water in our daily lives.

will be a celebration of water and the diverse rituals and cultural traditions associated with the act of bathing and cleansing

This day will also draw attention to the plight of people for whom bathing is not yet an option and increase our resolve to work towards a time when bathing is possible for all.
