With all of the LifeStraws we have deployed over the years, we currently reach 50 Communities impacting the health and productivity of 1000's of people.

Significantly reducing the incidence of diarrhoea
  • Diarrhoea kills more young children than malaria, HIV/AIDS and measles combined in Sub Saharan Africa!
Enhancing quality of life with good quality water
  • Increased productivity because time for water collection is reduced.
  • Better taste of food and drink.
Reducing the need for wood and helping the environment
  • Most cut wood is devoted to boiling water for sterilisation.
  • LifeStraws reduce the demand on wood and slow the rate of deforestation.
Providing employment and enterprise development
  • Many unskilled people are gainfully employed to make bracelets of high quality. Money raised from the sale of bracelets is used to teach commercial skills to bracelet staff to become financially independent.
