We are excited to announce our partnership and fundraising with Global Women’s Water Initiative. A portion of proceeds from every Libre tea glass sold until Mothers Day will go to the Global Women’s Water Initiative – GWWI.
Why we chose this organization?? Well we love to support organizations that advance women, water and wellness. This organization trains the women who then train their communities on building and maintaining sanitation and water projects.
As well, these women are given training to build their own economic support – a truly sustainable initiative. Since 2008, GWWI trainees have provided clean water and sanitation to over 35,000 and raised over $100,000 of their own funding to expand their projects. Their story:
Transforming African Women’s Water Burdens into Economic Opportunities
African women and girls bear the burden of water on their head, shoulders and backs losing out on economic and education opportunities. The Global Women’s Water Initiative is changing that! GWWI is transforming women from waters bearers to water providers and entrepreneurs! GWWI trains and seed funds African grassroots women to build various water and sanitation technologies like rainwater harvesting systems, water filters and toilets, all made out of local indigenous materials. They lead hygiene and health campaigns and make and sell products like soap, shampoo, chlorine and reusable menstrual pads. They get paid as masons and technicians, make money selling health and hygiene products and some have even been invited on local water boards, influencing local policies. These women are challenging gender stereotypes, implementing locally driven water solutions, improving community health and making money!
Help us make waves!
