Many of us have no idea that we could save 2 million lives a year if we did nothing other than provide access to clean water, without any other medical intervention. That’s exactly what “Drop In the Bucket”-a registered international NGO has been doing since 2006, to assist community development by constructing water and sanitation facilities at schools and communities.
SVAKOM this time is joining forces with DROP and decided to give 10% of its sales from August 20th to August 30th to this great cause.
For SVAKOM, donating to DROP is a tremendous honour and the money is well spent. DROP does both by bringing life-saving water to communities and schools in Uganda and South Sudan as well as creating the opportunity for education, to enable children, especially girls to receive an education and realize their full potential, as they believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and that every school should have access to clean water and improved sanitation facilities in order to create an environment that is conducive to learning. It’s something that fits really well with SVAKOM’s concept of social responsibility.
Currently, DROP has constructed or rehabilitated over 350 school water points in Uganda and South Sudan, this organization has made tangible impact and should be supported to continue its worthwhile efforts. SVAKOM renders it a great positive experience to make its contributions, the more people and communities who offer their “drops” in the bucket, the more buckets will fill up and overflow to converge into a mighty strength and make a big impact.
