Three Avocados

With almost 1 Billion people worldwide lacking access to clean, safe, drinking water, our primary goal at Three Avocados is to provide funding for clean water projects. 100% of the net proceeds from Three Avocados coffee provide clean water in Uganda, Africa. In addition to saving thousands of lives, clean water has the power to provide hope.

That statistic about 63 children dying every single day in Uganda breaks my heart. These are the same children we are trying to protect from jiggers through Sole Hope. Heartbreaking. But we can help!

How do they provide clean water? Each month, Three Avocados sponsors and builds a new well. (Here is a full list for 2012.) The December 2012 water project was for Aradyang:

Three Avocados Apolika

Aradyang is located in the Apac District of Uganda. This well now provides clean water to approximately 1,164 adults and children. The previous water source was a borehole (well), almost 2 miles away. This new water source now provides clean drinking water in their village, allowing more time for children to attend school!
