In many areas of the world, the supply of clean drinking water is currently not guaranteed and thus represents an immense potential for conflict and poverty. It is expected that in the coming years the supply with clean drinking water will play an increasingly important role. In order to sustainably change this in various areas of the world, Inspector Systems has been financially supporting "Viva con Agua" annually since 2020 with amounts in the mid 5-digit range for various projects.
Viva con Agua
Viva con Agua (Spanish for "Life with Water") is a non-profit organization. This means that it serves social and cultural goals without being profit oriented. The organization was founded in 2006 and works internationally to promote access to clean drinking water, hygiene and basic sanitation. Its focus is on the global south. Especially in African countries, where these conditions of human life are unfortunately rarely met.
Water is the basis of all life and therefore the right of every human being to have access to it. Viva con Agua has taken this principle to heart and supports so-called WASH projects (water, sanitation, hygiene) by being able to finance water projects primarily with donations from volunteers or companies. Thus, since its foundation in 2006, the living conditions of already 3 million people could be improved. Some of such water projects are, for example, the construction of wells in Uganda, as well as the establishment of so-called Cloudfishers in Tanzania, in order to collect rainwater and produce water.
Projects supported by Inspector Systems
In the Nile region and in Karamoja, Uganda, Viva con Agua supports an integrated WASH program together with Welthungerhilfe. This is a project to improve the general drinking water supply and hygiene. This includes the construction of wells, toilets and washrooms at schools. In this respect, we are supporting this project in order to improve the living conditions of almost 45,000 people in the long term.
In May 2021, the Cloudfisher project started in the Babati district in Tanzania, Africa. This region is located 2.000 m above sea level, which is why the construction of well systems is almost impossible there. The solution lies in the so-called Cloudfishers, which act as fog nets, absorbing and collecting humidity from the air. This project will help one third of the Tanzanian population, who until now had no access to clean drinking water. The project is expected to end in 2023. By then, we as a company will also be doing our part to ensure that as many networks as possible can be built.
