Coffee For You | Water For All

TOMS Roasting Co. purchases allow our partners to provide 140 liters of water, a week's supply to a person in need. But it goes beyond digging wells. Giving Partners support local business development and government investments to create sustainable water systems and solutions for widespread, long-term impact.

How Water Giving Works

  1. Step 1: Long Term Solutions

    All water systems are designed to provide continuous service, impacting a community for generations.

  2. Step 2: Local Ownership

    To ensure success, water systems require ongoing financing from the local government and community.

  3. Step 3: Water For All

    Each water solution is designed to provide access to safe water to every family, school and clinic in a community.
