Project Water Well

“We want the world to be a better place because we were here”, our mission statement. With this, we try to contribute to making this world a brighter place. We strive to not only contribute with our brand in this society, but also the basic needs or our world. 

We wake up, we shower with it, we drink it, we use it for daily tasks and we even flush our toilet with it. Life is not possible without water. In many areas children have to walk for 4 to 6 hours to reach a water supply. Therefore, children are often forced to drink from a river or pool shared with animals. In these cases it is a matter of waiting for the children to become critically ill. As a result, millions of children die every year.

Avek Water Well

We tried to contribute our part to this problem. We have built a water well in Gambia, which helps approximately 1300 people in the community to get to safe drinking water. It may not help all the people who are suffering from this, but every little bit helps. Great acts are made up of small deeds.

Access to clean water improves:

  • Education
    • When Students are freed from gathering water, they return to class.
  • Hunger
    • Access to water leads to food security. Crop will be increased, hunger is reduced.
  • Health
    • Safe water, hygiene and healthy water.
  • Poverty
    • Access to water can break the cycle of poverty. The communities we serve are ready to grow.
