Water2Life: A Journey across continents
With more than €600.000 donated since 2010 and sustainable clean water solutions provided for more than 50.000 people, Water2Life is a powerful employee-initiated and employee-driven program that works to bring clean water to communities in need on every continent. In 2013, the program wrapped its first 3-year project providing access to clean water to 16,000 people in Kenya, before making its way to Vietnam to help another 27,000. It is now launching on its third continent – the Americas.
Aside from making a tangible difference for low-income communites across the globe, the program helps strengthen our sustainable mindset and engage our employees in living the Grundfos values: Being sustainable, focused on people, and creating partnerships.
The current project of Water2Life is located in Honduras, where the program is helping public institutions such as schools and hospitals. The lack of water is usually not the issue, but most of the water sources suffers from contamination of heavy metals, chemicals etc. From 2017 to 2020 Water2Life aims at fundraising over €200.000 that will greatly benefit the vulnerable communities who need it the most.
