1 PRODUCT, 1 CHILD, 1 YEAR OF SAFE WATER

Our Give Back program

How Our Give Back Program Works

For every 500 products we sell, we distribute a LifeStraw Community purifier to a school in need which provides safe water to 100 school children for a period of five years. Put another way, one purchase of any LifeStraw product provides a year of safe water to a child in need, five purchases provide that child with safe water for the next five years. Read more below about how we do so much more than just provide water purifiers.

WE’RE NOT A ONE-FOR-ONE AND THERE’S A REASON

Not every product serves every context or water need! We have a portfolio of products that are designed specifically for low-resources and humanitarian settings.



WE DON’T JUST DROP OFF PRODUCTS

We provide onsite education and training, and year-round support to build and maintain relationships with our schools and communities, and to ensure the purifiers are properly maintained and use.

WE’RE NOT A ONE-FOR-ONE AND THERE’S A REASON

WE MAKE A FIVE-YEAR COMMITMENT TO EVERY SCHOOL

We provide on-site education, training and year-round support to build relationships with our schools and communities, and commit of minimum of five years of support to every school. After five years, we renew our commitment to the same schools with new technology, training and support unless those schools have gained access to safe water.



WE HIRE LOCALLY

In western Kenya, we employ over 40 fulltime local staff who work to ensure transparency, sustainability and program quality.
