The Water Project

Our flagship charity has been helping communities in sub-Saharan Africa gain access to clean, safe water since 2006.

Sustainable change helping people improve their life, village by village.

<p>In villages across Africa, clean water is something that is often difficult for people to find and retrieve. As a company serving water-intensive industries around the world, we feel a kinship with those who are helping improve those conditions. Solenis chose <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">The Water Project</a> as our main charity to help make a difference, especially for women and children who are often responsible for securing this vital resource every day. For the young people, carrying water frequently means leaving their classrooms and disrupting their education.</p> <p>The organization works with members of each community to rebuild natural springs, construct rainwater catchment systems, build sanitary latrines and handwashing facilities, and provide basic education on cleanliness and disease-prevention. To ensure long-term success, representatives of The Water Project frequently return to communities to ensure the systems are still functioning properly.</p> <p>Solenis has supported six projects so far. Learn more about each below.</p>
