March 24th, 2014: GloFish Clean Water Initiative Grant!

We are excited to announce the winners of our GloFish Clean Water Initiative Grant! The grant awards total $50,000 and will help provide clean drinking water to approximately 10,000 people over the next 20 years. 

Our largest award of $45,000 has been made to Well Aware to complete two projects in Kenya. The first project, a water well rehabilitation in Maruku, Kenya, will serve a community of more than 4,500 people. The community’s existing well has not been functioning since 2010, forcing schools, families and others to retrieve unsafe water approximately two to three miles away. We are proud to dedicate this project to Brian Crockett, an early GloFish investor, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2009.

Kids runningThe second Well Aware project, also a water well rehabilitation, is located in Alamach, Kenya and will serve a community of more than 5,000 people. With their well out of commission since 2012, residents are forced to retrieve water from unsafe seasonal streams miles away. When the streams are dry, residents must then walk nearly eight miles through dangerous areas. We are proud to dedicate this project to Lowell Lebermann, one of our former Board members who passed away in 2009.

Kids in classroomIn both communities, children are the hardest hit, with many dying due to infections common to unsafe water. With the grant, Well Aware anticipates repairing and creating a sustainable well system before the end of 2014. We are thrilled to be part of this effort! To support Well Aware, please click here.

We are also proud to have contributed $5,000 to charity: water to support BioSand filters in Cambodia. This contribution will help to fund a charity: water campaign to provide over 15,000 BioSand filters to support approximately 75 families with clean drinking water.
