A global supplier of residential lifts has teamed up with corporate partners in an effort to develop sustainable sources of clean, potable water to some of the remotest parts of Africa. Recently, Stiltz, a supplier of home lifts, announced that the company will be working alongside other companies to offer needed financial sponsorship for Africa-based projects initiated by The Africa Trust.
Projects All Over the Continent
As a financial sponsor of Africa Trust's many economic improvement efforts around the continent, Stiltz will be helping to fund well construction and other projects in Malawi, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, South Africa, Kenya, Mozambique, and Liberia. Stiltz already has its own business presence in numerous African nations, especially on the eastern side of the massive landmass. Operating in more than 40 nations worldwide, the lift company has always sought connections with organizations that help those in need, wherever they might be.
More Than Just Clean Water
The trust does much more than building wells, so financial assistance from any source can go a long way toward bringing many different kinds of projects to completion. For example, since its founding in 2010, the trust has emphasized bringing sustainable solutions to locations in Africa where poverty, and the lack of clean water, is most critical. That means not only constructing wells but also working to bring the overall level of sanitation up to livable standards. That's why most pump projects include entire water-related infrastructure for small villages, including fresh drinking water, toilet facilities, and all the supplies required to keep the systems running for years to come.
Making Life Better for Everyone
With financial help from key sponsors like Stiltz, trust is able to survive and thrive. That's good news for people in all the nations the trust serves. In addition to wells and sanitation facilities, the aid organization helps local adults who need business training so they can start their own companies and bring economic relief to the community. What's more, they make educational and counseling resources available for adults who were forced into military service as young child soldiers.
Waterborne disease is another problem that plagues many poor villages in Africa, and the trust works to build filtration systems using local ceramics and other commonsense technology. Behind everything, the organization does is the idea of long-term sustainability and giving local residents the power to take charge of their own destiny. Sometimes that simply means building a well and turning its operation over to the community. In other situations, it means job training, education, installing sanitation systems, and helping people who were pressed into military duty when they were only seven or eight years old.
Stiltz and other companies who see the need to support charitable entities like The Africa Trust have the chance to assist people who need help with life's basic necessities. Sometimes that means nothing more than being able to drink clean water whenever they need it or learning how to build several wells in a large village so everyone has access to essential human needs that so many people take for granted.
