#Sweat4Soap Impact Delivers Clean Water

Dear Changemakers,

 

We are so grateful for your support of our COVID-19 response. In the previous update, we shared the success of the #Sweat4Soap campaign. The five-day (12-17 October 2021) global activation attracted support from over 130 countries. Every kilometre logged by runners around the world, was matched by a bar of soap and every 100,000 kilometres with a solar-powered water kiosk for rural Ghanaian communities in need. The total distance covered during the campaign was 277,378 km. In impact terms that is equivalent to 277,378 bars of soap and 2 solar-powered water kiosks donated to Ghanaian communities to shield them from a potentially catastrophic COVID outbreak.

We are so thrilled to share the successful implementation of the first #Sweat4Soap kiosk, on the banks of the Volta river. The kiosk was installed in December, as part of a small distribution system and it is an extremely successful project in terms of community patronage and consumption patterns.

Key to success is the local CBO (Community based organization); a very tight-knit community that has invested a lot in infrastructure (e.g. they built a clinic themselves). Now water will change their lives forever. Secondly, it is only our second small network – the MajiPlus - and technically it works really well.

The site selection of the second kiosk (Mini Maji) is almost completed and I will share the community details and final timeline in the next report.

 

Once again, thank you so much for empowering us in this life-changing mission!

Forever Grateful,

Project Maji Team
