Stichting Elemental Water Foundation - What we do
We enable safe and affordable fresh water on a global scale through realizing projects that provide water using desalination powered by renewable energy for people that face water scarcity in developing countries.
Already 4 billion people are facing water scarcity due to population growth, an increasing water footprint and climate change effects. It’s the least fortunate that are at the forefront of the increase of water scarcity.
Today, 1 in 9 people lack access to safe water. Women are disproportionately affected, as they are often responsible for collecting water. It’s also a matter of health: every 90 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. What if we can improve health and enable empowerment & education? It’s time to break the cycle of poverty for communities.
Who we are
We are a non-profit Foundation that acknowledges water scarcity as the biggest challenge in the 21st century. We believe that it’s possible to move from water scarcity to abundance using the right partnerships and technology. It’s long-term, sustainable solutions that we believe in. Our Foundation and its Board Members work voluntarily without any compensation for their time and efforts.
For us, it’s all about making an impact by realizing water projects using desalination powered by renewable energy. To help the people who need it most get safe access to affordable drinking water to break the cycle of poverty.
