ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER AND PROPER SANITATION
IS A HUMAN RIGHT.

Lack of clean water Africa.
The United Nations estimate that Sub-Saharan Africa alone looses approximately 40 billion potential work hours per year collecting water. The rate of return on spending on water and sanitation can exceed other public investments such as transport, health or education and liberate communities in finding economic opportunities.
Empowering the thirsty.
Our work focuses on discovering, drilling and creating sources of clean drinking water and building viable networks of water-wells in rural communities. Our aim is to diminish the health-risks associated with drinking contaminated water. The access to clean water and sanitation improves the quality of life of an entire community and also brings tangible health and economic benefits to them directly contributing to reducing poverty. Our clean water initiative ultimately aims at advancing human progress and helping families escape the devastating cycle of poverty and disease that affects their health and drains their economic resources.
Diseases from dirty water kill more people every year than all forms of violence combined, including war.
43% of the attributed deaths are children under the age of 5.
Access to clean water and basic sanitation can save around 16,000 lives each week.
