water is Life
Water is Life has its origin back in 2008 during a holiday/
cooperation trip to Ethiopia when Joan Vinyets and Johanna Thörnblad personally witnessed the extreme need for clean drinking water in rural Ethiopia.
In Ethiopia they also met the excellent non-profit organization, A Glimmer of Hope (AGOH), and learned about their integrated development model that transforms entire communities. AGOH works with community members to achieve sustainable change.
After returning to their home in Barcelona Joan and Johanna started the 100% non-profit fundraising campaign “Water is Life”, in order to implicate family and friends in their quest to provide clean drinking water to communities in rural Ethiopia.
Starting in 2019 Water is Life will not only be supporting water projects in rural Ethiopia, but also health, education, and income generating projects such as micro-credits and livelihood training.
