TALIS supports the international water charity Just a Drop.
Did you know that approximately 663 million people have no access to clean drinking water in this world? That every 90 seconds a child dies from an infection they got through contaminated water? As “water is our business” we started looking at how we could help to change that. After some investigation we at TALIS decided to work together with a non-profit organization called “Just a Drop”. “Just a Drop” has a history of identifying and sponsoring over 200 clean and safe water-related projects across the world. To help give people access to potable water, TALIS has supported the international water charity “Just a Drop” – with a project in Kenya, which has been chosen by all TALIS employees.
As this is our area of expertise we have supported the selected project during one year with valves and engineering knowhow as well. The mission of Just a Drop is to provide clean water, sanitation and hygiene education to communities in need through practical, sustainable water solutions. The organization has already reached over 1.3 million people in 31 countries.
Below you can see how we went through this great project in the past year.
