Water, Sanitation and hygiene
With the creation of the Marie-Stella-Maris company, the foundation of the same name was created. Sustainable Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) projects are independently selected through this foundation. In this way, we ensure that the contribution of all Marie-Stella-Maris products you buy benefits the suitable projects. By carefully selecting the projects and following them closely during and after their realization, we strive to ensure that each project contributes structurally. In this process we work closely with our partner Aqua for All. Aqua for All is a non-profit organization founded by the Dutch water sector and is known for its expertise in water, sanitation, and hygiene-related challenges.
OUR WATER PROJECTS
Impact on thousands
Since 2011, we have supported 14 water projects in different countries, including Uganda, Mozambique, Bangladesh, and Tanzania. As a result, thousands of people have already gained sustainable access to clean water. Improving water, sanitation, and hygiene work together to improve overall health. Access to sanitation, such as simple latrines in communities, prevents contamination of drinking water by human waste and reduces infections. Beyond the value of lives saved, there are other benefits of access to clean water, such as increased economic productivity, more time for education, and savings on doctor's fees.
