500 of these ‘limited edition’ RED scarves worn around the world build a clean water well for the village of Pen Ameth.
The residents of Pen Ameth know firsthand how life-changing clean water can be. They had a borehole drilled in 1980 and it provided more than enough water for almost 20 years. Since the well dried up in 1997, people have been travelling many hours every day to the village of Malith – where we drilled a water well years ago. Women are leaving behind their families to get water, relying on the older children to take care of the younger ones. This means nobody is going to school. Nobody is working on gardens. Nobody is caring for the home. Everything revolves around ensuring there is enough water to drink that day.
Each scarf is packaged with tags and material about the Obakki Foundation’s programs for clean water and information about the community that benefits from your purchase.
As you wear this scarf, remember its greater purpose.
Thanks to your support, this village will have access to clean water.
