We are fully engaged in preparations for our 2021 meter reading, which we always announce on World Water Day.
It turns out: we have already been able to give more than 100,000 people access to clean drinking water!
How much is that actually? And how can we be so sure?
this is an unbelievably large number of people who have now gained access to clean drinking water thanks to the contributions of our ambassadors. It is more than a drop in the ocean for the millions of people who still lack access. That is why we continue to work very hard on our mission: clean drinking water for everyone. We are currently doing this in these projects:
How can we be so sure that we have reached this amount of people? Well, prior to each project we determine how many people we can reach in the regions where we install the water supplies. In doing so, we maintain some risk margin.
During the project we keep in close contact with the implementing partners about the progress and if necessary we adjust the plans. Afterwards, an evaluation will follow in which we map out exactly how many people benefit from the water supplies.
It may also happen that we reach more people than expected, such as with the Water Vending Machines from Said. All in all, we know for sure that we always achieve at least what we promise to our donors!
Do you also want to contribute to clean drinking water for everyone in a way that suits you?
