With COVID 19, most of the local people in Bali have lost their jobs and livelihoods have disappeared.
Borders are closed, there are no tourists anymore and tourism represents 80% of Bali’s economy. Families struggle to make ends meet and every penny saved makes a huge difference.
During these times of crisis, the poor and vulnerable suffer the most. It is so heartbreaking to witness, so I decided to act.
My name is Jeroen and I believe access to clean water is a human right. I am the founder of Social Impakt a Social Enterprise with the mission to improve access to clean drinking water in rural Indonesia. By providing a simple, affordable and eco-friendly water filtration technology.
Join the movement to give access to clean drinking water and positively impact 2 500 people.
Water filters have never been more needed than NOW. This is WHY.
In Bali, water from the tap is not drinkable. So either people go and buy bottled water, which is expensive OR they boil water, on wood or gas, which also costs money.
Using water filters is 5 times cheaper than boiling water and 30 times cheaper than buying bottled water on a per liter basis.
It also reduces plastic bottle use and people can filter tap water from home, without having to go out to buy water, which is better in present times.
On top of the Economic benefits, there are also Health benefits. Using the water filter literally breaks the vicious circle of poverty.
Here is the plan…
Together we can raise US $ 10 000 to provide 500 water filters for 500 families in Bali, offering clean drinking water to 2500 people.
We launched our crowdfunding campaign on April 23rd.
We will distribute the water filters to the families who need them most in the villages of Bali.
