How It Works

How It Works

Every limited edition umbrella you purchase funds a clean-water well at a school in Uganda.

Children lose 443 million school days a year due to water related illness. When you purchase a limited edition umbrella you are giving a child a future.

Your umbrella is one piece of the puzzle. When your limited edition pattern sells out, we will never make that pattern again and one clean-water well is funded; saving the lives of over 1,000 children.

Your connection doesn’t need to stop there. Register your umbrella’s number and follow pictures, videos, and blogs of the well you funded and the children you gave life!

Why Water?

Supplying clean water means increased health and education for impoverished women and children. According to the WHO, disease from unsafe water and lack of sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. 90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are in children under five years old. You have the power to stop these deaths.

Unsafe water also effects gender equality. In most cases women and children are responsible for water collection exposing them to unsafe trails, harassment, and sexual assault. With safe water near schools women have the time to pursue education that improves their quality of life.
