Voss Water may be known for its premium product that carries a premium price, but the company also has its own foundation to support clean water projects.
Simply called the Voss Foundation, a new Facebook app looks to keep fans informed on various clean water projects in Africa.
Currently, Voss has six initiatives going in Mali, Liberia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Swaziland.
Facebook users can see an interactive map, and clicking on a country provides more information such as the project overview.
You can also view a photo gallery of the initiative, and read more about the real lives that are being impacted.
Here are just a few highlights of how Voss Water has been able to help:
In Mali: Over 100 women are able to grow and sell produce from the Women’s Association Garden, doubling their income.
In Liberia: A water pump is located just 12 feet from a newly constructed assisted living facility, removing the need to travel long distances for water.
In Kenya: Although two tribes have historically not gotten along, access to clean water has helped to ease tensions and bring peace.
To date, the Voss Foundation has helped to build 68 water access points, impacting the lives of over 100,000 people.
Some 300 million people in Sub-Saharan Africa still lack access to clean water, and to learn more about Voss’ mission, you can visit their website here.
