Ranita's 40th BIrthday Party

BENEFITING: Clearwater Initiative

EVENT DATE: May 17, 2014

THE STORY:

The facts are staggering: more than 8 million people - over a quarter of Uganda's population - lack access to clean, safe water. Most of those who lack access to clean water live in rural areas. More than 12,000 children die each year of diahrea, which is caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation.
ClearWater Initiative promotes simple, sustainable solutions for the provision of clean water in northern Uganda.
ClearWater Initiative was founded in 2007 by Benjamin Sklaver. A graduate of Tufts University with a master’s degree in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School at Tufts, Ben had a particular interest in assisting refugees and the poor in Africa. After volunteering in the ROTC, in 2009, Ben was redeployed to Afghanistan where he worked building basic infrastructure such as water points and schools. On October 2, 2009, he was killed by a suicide bomber while on foot patrol in the Afghan village of Murcheh.
Ben and his fiance Beth were friends of ours in New York, and we are proud to help contribute to Bens' amazing vision.
