Water Em(powerEd) Communities


Creating local franchise businesses to solve the global water crisis. 

 

Why?

In our world today, there are 1.8 billion people that still use contaminated water. 8 million people die annually from water-related disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that simply providing poor communities with access to clean water and education on proper sanitation and hygiene can eliminate 56% of the global disease burden.

OUR SOLUTION

We utilize a proven model of clean water distribution in order to empower communities to seek better health, more productivity, and greater quality of life. Our team travels to communities that lack clean water access and educates the community members on the importance of clean water, sanitation and hygiene. We then equip community leaders with the resources necessary to build a small business centered on affordable, filtered water. By tapping into the entrepreneurial spirit of the community, 33 Buckets can help them develop self-sustaining solutions to their clean water issues.

How It Works


How It Works


Once 33 Buckets is contracted to set up a self-sustaining water business in a rural community, 33 Buckets has the community water tested to evaluate the water conditions and the purification processes needed for the water to meet the World Health Organization standards. The 33 Buckets team simultaneously conducts extensive research in the community to better understand the market and apply the most effective micro-franchise business. The purification system is then selected according to the water specifications and the desired scale of the business. It is contracted to a local company so that any repairs can be promptly made by the company or the community, with the support of the company ensuring the longevity of the filtration system.

The local community members nominate an entrepreneur to run the business and sell the clean water for a low-cost affordable cost. A portion of the revenue is allocated to supporting local schools in the region to create a bright future for the community. Before 33 Buckets consultants leave the village, a water advisory committee is created comprised of important community figures and ambitious students to maintain, update, and track the progress of the delivering of clean water to their families.
