World Water Day (March 22nd) is quickly approaching and to celebrate, S’well has collaborated with Able Made, a company which is devoted “to bringing communities together to create beautifully designed, exclusive products that fund social impact projects”. Together, S’well and Able Made have designed an exclusive bottle, directly supporting WaterAid’s efforts in Nicaragua. A collaborative social media contest provided fans of both organizations with an opportunity to join in the efforts. Three different designs were produced and the finalized product was voted on by S’well and Able Made supporters alike.
The winning “Thirsty for Change” bottle will help WaterAid to provide clean water to Auhya Pihni Village School in Nicaragua. The school’s current rainwater collection system has proven insufficient to last the entirety of their dry season. Additionally, proceeds from sales of these bottles will aid the production of hand washing stations in each classroom, as well as new bathrooms with separate facilities for boys and girls.
Auhya Pihni is a Miskitu Indian village in the North Atlantic Region of the Nicaraguan Caribbean of Nicaragua inhabited by 276 families (roughly 1,280 people). The three-room secondary school has an enrollment of 50 students (17 boys and 33 girls), while their primary school provides education to 364 students (203 boys and 161 girls).
With your purchase of a Limited Edition Able Made x S’well Bottle, you support WaterAid in America and their funding of this important project.
