A Chat about Rainwater Catchment

February 26, 2021, 9 PM - February 26, 2021, 9 PM US/Pacific

~ Women in Sub-Saharan Africa spend 16 million hours every day collecting water. Every. Day. How can someone create a better future for themselves if they don’t have access to the most fundamental of all resources? It’s a big problem that will probably require many solutions. We have a solution that can scale, uses mostly local resources for construction (including our bricks), and can fit a house or a village or anywhere there is a roof. We like roofs. Come Chat with us about Rainwater Catchment Tanks and see how they are creating water security and resilience.

And to tell us they've already sold hundreds of liters of their new Meta Soap. It's our biggest soap program yet with plans to be nationally certified and grow beyond their community. After you've read this month's article about Multipurpose Soap, make sure you watch the Chat.
