OWC’s charity: water Campaign Helps Villages in Africa

charitywater_vertical_whitePreviously on the Rocket Yard, we told you about the $80,000 raised as part of OWC’s charity: water campaign. That campaign was part of an even larger campaign called “100 Wells For The Holidays” that raised more than $1.5 million to bring sustainable drinking water solutions to people in developing nations.

In an ongoing series on the Rocket Yard, we will share the Ethiopian communities that have benefited from charity: water’s mission. These villages now have access to safe and clean drinking water and have been trained on safe hygiene practices and basic maintenance of their water project.
