Our 2014 World Championship Tour partnership with WSL resulted in the completion of clean-water projects across South Africa, from Eastern to the Western Capes, and even Madagascar.
As a result of our ongoing collaboration with WSL, this part of the world now is using W4W clean-water systems to help prevent suffering from water-borne disease.
Because J-Bay is a natural crossroads for surfers arriving from all over the world, it makes an ideal distribution hub for our filters.
Our local partners now include J-Bay Rotary Club, Aleph Surf International, Brenton Williams, Share The Stoke Foundation, Enrique Garcia, Estelle de Beer, manager of Seashells Luxury Apartments, Kain Sissons, Christian Surfers South Africa, Lucas Verboom, Alan Van Gysen Photgraphy, J-Bay Municipal Water Dept, These non-profit organizations, and individual Clean Water Couriers, are getting filters & buckets to rural farm schools, remote communities, orphanages and medical clinics. And these are the people that will continue to bring clean water in the future, whenever new shipments of filters arrive in J-Bay and Cape Town.
Here's just one example: J-Bay Rotary Club's ongoing program that includes a mobil library that brings books to remote farm schools - these communities all suffer from bad water. Rotary is now bringing our clean-water systems with their mobil library and training the teachers and distributing
to all the schools, whose main source of water is collected rainfall in large storage tanks.
As usual, the attached images, and WSL video, tell this story best: The payoff, for traveling across the world and going through what we go through, is getting to be with kids like these. Happy, positive, always ready to help more people get more water.
