CleanTaps wants to generate awareness of the worldwide water crisis through education, fundraising and entrepreneurial action. It aims to involve SAIT students in Wine to Water service trips to actively learn about and help with the water crisis.
CleanTaps is a new project of Enactus SAIT in partnership with Wine to Water. Nearly 1 billion people in the world today lack access to adequate water and 2.5 billion lack access to improved sanitation.
The work of Wine to Water has resulted in over 400,000 people in 24 countries receiving clean water. Importantly, relationships have been built, lives saved and communities forever changed. The project aims to multiply the impact 100 fold by using the power of entrepreneurial action.
For SAIT students, the impact of awareness and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others may just be the spark that leads to life long commitment to ensure that one-day, everyone in the world has access to clean water. We are a fortunate population – we have the opportunity to work so that others have access to this very basic human need.
