Since day one, our founders have donated a portion of our annual revenue to provide clean water in West Africa. We support Wells Bring Hope, an organization that drills deep-water wells in rural villages. Introducing a safe water source into their communities is a single event that helps eliminate death and sickness from water-borne illnesses. It has a lasting impact, but their work doesn't stop there.
That's because in many of these communities, women and girls walk up to six miles each day to get water and carry it back home. When a village receives a well, they no longer carry this burden. That time can be used to attend school, receive training, and eventually launch her own small business to generate income for her family. We love Wells Bring Hope because they are the only U.S.-based safe water cause that establishes microfinance education programs specifically for women in these communities.
"We would love for more people to learn about this cause and see this as a real issue around the world," says our CEO Sarine Sahatjian. "We believe it’s our responsibility to give, whether that’s personally or through our business."
Empowering and uplifting women is a cause close to our hearts because as a mother of two young children and a business owner, Sahatjian has seen the influence for good that women and womanhood have in world.
