Today has been a rewarding day for our staff at VoiceNation. We are a company of heavy hearts, eager to make a difference in this world. And through our non profit outreach program Voice4Nations, we are able to do just that and boy it feels good! Earlier this year, we raised $1,015 through our Ice Cream Challenge Campaign to help bring clean and safe water to people in developing nations. This afternoon, we received word from charity: water that global water projects are now underway in Ethiopia and Nepal!
Right now, the partners of charity: water are getting permits and supplies, as well as the picking the best site to set up shop and begin work. We are excited to share this information with you because this wouldn’t be possible without our many supporters, so thank you!
About the water project in Ethiopia:
According to charity: water, “more than 86 million people live in Ethiopia, and 56% lack access to clean drinking water. Our local partner, A Glimmer of Hope (AGOH), is busy helping communities build 60 new and rehabilitated hand-dug wells, 79 new and rehabilitated drilled wells, and 11 new and rehabilitated spring protections.”
About the water project in Nepal:
Charity: water reports, “Of the nearly 31 million people living in Nepal, 11% lack access to clean drinking water and 69% lack access to sanitation. Thanks to you, our local partner, Nepal Water for Health (NEWAH), is busy helping communities build 40 large-scale gravity fed water systems and 62 rehabilitated hand-dug wells in the Sinduhili and Chitwan districts.”
