Every day in rural communities and poor urban centers throughout sub-Saharan Africa, hundreds of millions of people suffer from a lack of access to clean, safe water.
Women and girls especially bear the burden of walking miles at a time 7 days a week to gather water from streams and ponds – full of water-borne disease that is making them and their families sick.
Illness from drinking dirty water and the time lost fetching it robs entire communities of their futures.
Hope is put on hold in over half of the developing world’s primary schools without access to water and sanitation.
Access to safe water is foundational to the development of any community. Clean water restores hope and unlocks potential.
In sub-Saharan Africa, we help communities catch the rain, protect fresh-water springs, filter surface water, and maintain proper sanitation and hygiene practices.
The support of pool and hot tub consumers, our Professional Dealer Network coupled with the support of a growing number of community Rotary Clubs and Rotary International enables careful project selection construction and rigorous long-term follow up and evaluation.
Our efforts at home amplify the voices of the poor and the nearly one billion people worldwide who don’t have access to clean, safe water – a basic human right.
We are not heroes.
Together with our collaborators, we’re just trying to be good neighbours
by lending a hand to people we know can change the world.
