access to clean water for all

That is our mission! And that is why we make water from water in an entrepreneurial and transparant way. Do you want to contribute too?

it starts with water

Access to water is the basis of a healthy and productive life! In the Western world, we take access to clean water for granted, but for 1 out of every 10 people on the planet it is a day’s work to fetch safe water.

Women and children in particular spend a lot of time walking for water… water that is often not even suitable for consumption. Time spent on walking for water cannot be spent on a job, school or caring for a family.

It is estimated that 485,000 people die every year as a result of contaminated drinking water and poor sanitation. That is over 1,300 people per day (source).

Until the day I gave birth, I had to walk for water. That took all day. Now it only takes half an hour.
