For every two watches sold we’re able to provide clean drinking water to one person.
663 million people drink dirty water. That’s 26 times the population of Australia, or 1 in 10 people worldwide. The majority of which will spend hours a day collecting water for their families, leaving little time for schooling. The collected water is often filled with life threatening diseases
This is the most simple one. Dirty water carries various deadly diseases, killing more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. On average access to clean drinking water and basic sanitation could save 16,000 lives each week. That’s a lot.
Easy access to clean water helps keep kids in school. Less time spent collecting water means more time in school earning a valuable eduction. This is especially true for young girls who will often spend a week out of every month at home due to lack of proper toilet facilities.
It’s simple maths. The less time spent collecting water the more time communities can spend earning a living, going to school and growing food. In Africa alone women spend 40 billion hours a year collecting water.
Women are responsible for 72% of the water collected in Sub-Saharan Africa. When communities get access to clean water women are able to reclaim their lives. Whether thats starting a business, improving their living conditions or spending time with family.
THE NITTY GRITTY
Details that matter
All our funds go directly to charity: water.
They work with a 100% model, in which all their operation costs are covered by very generous private donors. Meaning that 100% of public money donated goes directly to the field, providing real change..
Each dollar can tracked to a project with GPS coordinates and photos of completed projects.
Every completed water pump project is fitted with a remote flow monitor, providing real time data on the functionality of the system. This ensures not only that the project is completed but is also sustainable.
