Through Aqua4Life, LifeStraw® products by Vestergaard, are now available for SA, Namibia, Botswana, Swaziland, Lesotho, Transkei and Zimbabwe. The roll out and delivery is always dependent of the goodwill and ability of both government and business to partner with us in this new and exciting venture.

Aqua4Life also fully upholds the tenets of corporate social responsibility, thinking of it as just one part of corporate social ability. Aqua4Life also recognize that it’s not just the goal of our business, but also how business is done, that matters.

Looking forward, Aqua4Life is very excited about several initiatives we’re undertaking to become better corporate AFRICAN citizens. The well-being of people, especially our children, is extremely important, and we look forward to achieving that in both our business objectives and our approach to reaching them.

Relate Trust manufacture our bracelets.

Relate is a not-for-profit social enterprise that does not rely on funding. Instead, income is generated through the creation and sale of simple decorative beaded bracelets, and used to fund a variety of beneficiaries. In the process, the lives of the beaders are changed as they develop skills, find employment and gain dignity.

The insertion of a small, signature “R” bead in each bracelet represents a philosophy of Respect, Recognition and Responsibility for self and others. A large charm bead in every bracelet displays the branding of the cause it represents.

Relate has developed cause bracelets for many other worthy organisations.
