MADZI NDI MOYO

(Water is life)

Our friends in Malawi taught us this phrase, and ever since, it has been our anthem.

WHO WE ARE

The communities we partner with have been fighting against dirty water for centuries, and the effects are devastating. At Renown Collective, we’ve joined this fight by teaming up with the best African-led organizations who are committed to holistic and sustainable solutions. Together, we want to end the water crisis so the African people can experience the flourishing they were made for!

Before I found Renown Collective, I wanted to be sure my money would count for something important. When I heard Renown Collective’s vision for going about their work in Africa in the right way, I became a monthly donor because I can’t think of anything better to give my money to. I believe there is nothing more important to be a part of than this.

The Challenge
DISEASE

Did you know that water-related diseases are the leading cause of death in the world?

1 out of every 3 people (over 2.2 billion) still lack access to clean, safe drinking water! In Africa, the death rate due to lack of clean water and sanitation is four times the global rate. Children in Africa are 15 times more likely to die under the age of 5 than children in higher-income countries, accounting for over 90% of child deaths! Most of us cannot fathom death by diarrhea, but this is the reality for almost 1,000 children every single day.

The solution
clean
water

It all starts with clean water, however, this is only the beginning. Every project is holistic and implements the full WASH strategy. WASH stands for water, sanitation, and hygiene, and each piece is essential to defeating the bully in every community.

For example, without toilets, water sources become contaminated. But without clean water, basic hygiene practices are impossible. This is why all of our well projects include the necessary sanitation facilities and the training required for the community to have ownership of the whole process. When we kick the bully out of a community, we intend for it to stay out. Our African partners and local community leaders ensure the long-term sustainability of every project. There is built-in accountability with consistent progress reports and long-term water quality checks that continue years beyond the launch of a well. Additionally, we work with our local partners to improve healthcare by building and staffing medical clinics where they are most needed.

The Challenge
ILLITERACY

Education is the gateway of opportunity for children in Africa, but dirty water makes the journey through school impossible for many children.

Water-related illnesses leave students sick at home or caring for sick family members. These illnesses often lead to death, leaving families fragmented and children orphaned and unable to afford school fees. A lack of female facilities, stigmas around menstruation, and the burden of collecting water for the family leaves young girls severely impacted. Even when students can attend school, dirty water still threatens their well-being. Half of the schools in the world don’t have handwashing facilities available to students, meaning schools themselves can become breeding grounds for deadly disease.
