Between 2018 and 2019, we facilitated access to drinking water for more than 2,500 people, thanks to the distribution of 397 purifying water filters that we distributed among families and schools in rural areas of Ecuador.
We have proven in the field how this practical solution that fits in our hand can change lives.
Because clean water is the source of all progress.
Our goal is to help more people with difficult access to drinking water, starting with Latin America. And... how?
We have created our own brand of filters and a new scalable distribution system. So we can start the sale of our filters in Europe (for your daily activities), and 100% of the profits go to families and schools in areas most affected by the Water Crisis, so that they can have filters at very low prices. reduced, even free.
We are The Social Water, a team of professionals who work on a voluntary basis to make access to clean water a reality around the world.
We launched this campaign to start this clear and transparent filter distribution system (like water). And it will be possible thanks to you.
Can you support us with your drop to fill the glass of the Water Crisis?
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
"Water is life", but it is also progress. It is a natural and vital resource for health and development. However, clean water is a luxury in countries suffering from the Water Crisis. Especially for women and children who spend a large part of their day obtaining this resource.
At The Social Water, we have found a simple, effective solution that can be taken to all corners of the planet: purifying water filters, capable of instantly removing 99.999% of all bacteria, impurities and microplastics that water may have.
So that everyone has access to our filters in a social, transparent and fair way, we have created a scalable distribution system. And on our scale the protagonists are 3:
Communities suffering from the Water Crisis, and can get these filters at production price with The Social Water.
People who want to help (like you). And they will also enjoy the advantages of our filters, such as reducing the consumption of plastic bottles.
And our online store where different types of filters will go on sale. This tool serves as a link, so that those who want to help can buy the filter that best suits their needs; 100% of the profits are used in the distribution costs (transport, taxes and personnel) of more filters; so that they are also available to the communities that suffer the most from the Water Crisis. Starting with Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and Ecuador in Latin America.
In addition to collaborating with families and schools to improve their health, well-being and progress, our commitment is also to invest in new systems that are even more respectful with the environment, and that improve even more the day-to-day lives of people who suffer from the water crisis.
Why this is important
Whether you are concerned about your own microplastic consumption (present even in 90% of bottled water), you want to avoid the use of single-use plastic and improve the quality of the water you drink daily or simply, you want to be a Water Hero with a donation that will be used 100% to facilitate access to clean water.
With your support, we can make it possible for our filters to reach communities, schools and families, where they are suffering from the water crisis, through our scalable and social distribution system of purifying water filters.
Or as we say in The Social Water:
A filter for you, an opportunity for the world.
In addition, the acquisition of rewards through this platform are considered as donations. Therefore, if you reside in Spain or in other EU countries you can deduct de donations.
All this will be possible thanks to 35 professionals in different fields, belonging to 9 nationalities, who are volunteering to make this proyect happen.
We are all different, but we all have one thing in common: we believe in a better world, and we want to be part of the change.
We are using our time, knowledge and skills with the aim that very soon, many people in many parts of the world will have access to drinking water that, in addition to their health, also has a positive impact on their life chances. And you, you can be part of this initiative
