Why Water?

A Basic Need

"Clean water, basic toilets and good hygiene practices are essential for the survival and development of children.  Without these basic needs, the lives of millions of children are at risk. For children under five, water- and sanitation-related diseases are one of the leading causes of death."

                                                 -UNICEF

The Costs of Inaction

"Unsafe water and poor sanitation and hygiene result in countless deaths and a huge burden of disease among young children – almost all of it preventable.More than four billion cases of diarrhea cause 2.2 million deaths—mostly of children under the age of five."                                                                                                                                       -UNICEF

The Base of the Pyramid

"Providing clean drinking water is necessary for optimal health. Currently a billion people lack access to safe drinking water, and 2.6 billion lack access to basic sanitation."


                 -Abundance, by Diamandis & Kotler 

The Goal

At Esperanto, we aspire to help the communities that produce the coffee we love. We provide information and training on water safety and water conservation, with the long term goal of developing potable water projects.

Collaboration

 To tackle our goal of providing clean water throughout the world, we seek to collaborate with various organizations such as Engineers Without Borders and local Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO).
