Cole Engineering Group Ltd's (COLE) Water Infrastructure team organized a social hour to raise money for Water for People, a charitable, nonprofit, international humanitarian organization dedicated to the development and delivery of clean, safe water and sanitation solutions in developing nations. As COLE strives to create viable communities in North America and globally, supporting Water for People aligns with this objective.
Water for People--Canada was established in 1995 by Canadian water industry professionals with the goal of supporting and promoting the mission of Water For People in Canada among industry professionals and the broader community.
Globally, 1.8 billion people lack access to clean drinking water and 2.4 billion lack access to adequate sanitation resulting in 840,000 deaths per year. Many nonprofit organizations are working towards providing clean water and sanitation to these developing countries, but none do it like Water For People. Water For People; Everyone, Forever.
The Water for People Social Hour included a chili cook-off for the Leadership Team, a water carrying contest, shirt sales and other fundraisers.
Together, COLE staff were able to raise $2237.30 for Water for People--Canada, exceeding our $2000 fundraising goal.
