  • Stella Artois supports Water.org

  • Time for more in life
    Beema and her family live in a village in Tirunelveli, a city in the south Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Water sourced from the Tamirabarani River is provided by the municipality here, however Beema must walk several blocks to a public source to collect water each day. Her wait at the tap is long as women from all over her community share a dependency on this source. And, at the end of a long wait, Beema can only bring home what she is able to carry. But things are changing. Through Water.org Beema was able to take out a small loan to fund the construction of a water tap at her home. Now, her family will have access to water just outside their door, and Beema’s time can be spent doing more than collect water.
    This project was made possible by a generous grant from the PepsiCo Foundation.
  • Income and opportunity
    Kasozi and his family make their home in a village in Mukono, Uganda. While a significant portion of the country’s population have access to water (almost 75%), many of the systems are in need of maintenance or repair to function and meet government standards. In the case of Kasozi, he has a piped water connection to his home however a reliable flow of water is rare. During the dry seasons he hardly has access to water through the connection. Seeking a better solution to meet his family’s daily needs for water, Kasozi took a WaterCredit loan to install a rain catchment tank on his property. Now, he has so much water in storage, he can sell some of the excess to his neighbors. He fills their jugs at a reasonable rate, and still makes money to put toward his loan and household needs.
