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.
All water systems are designed to provide continuous service, impacting a community for generations.
To ensure success, water systems require ongoing financing from the local government and community.
Each water solution is designed to provide access to safe water to every family, school and clinic in a community.
At TOMS, we understand that strong partnerships are key. Here are some of the qualities we look for in our Water Giving Partners:
Develop water systems that are built to last for over a decade and can support themselves with limited outside assistance.
Throughout the process, community involvement is required for success.
Partner with local and national governments, NGOs and the private sector to develop water systems.
Constantly monitor, evaluate and improve the system.
Empower the local community to manage the water system over time.
