The pledge to provide safe water worldwide happens in a variety of ways. In Cascas, Peru, a local school participated in a program about the importance of sanitation. Led by TOMS Giving Partner Water For People, local community members were educated about sanitation and proper hygiene – critical aspects on investing in safe water infrastructures.

Upon completion of the training, the school was certified as a “healthy school,” and the community empowered for generations to come.

TOMS Roasting Co. partners with Water For People to provide sanitary water and education in the countries from which we source our beans. While access to uncontaminated water may start with a rain catchment system or a water pump, sustaining safe water begins with education. Water For People seeks to provide information and support to people around the world so pure, continuous water will exist forever.
