Partners for sustainable futures
To support its commitment, Acqua for Life collaborates with three main partners: Unicef, WaterAid and Water.org. In collaboration with them, Acqua for Life projects are selected after a thorough evaluation process. Acqua for Life evaluates the condition of water resources in the community or country concerned, looking at water shortages today, water projections for 2040 and the financial situation of the country or community. The same requirement applies to the partners that the program relies upon.
For the thirteenth year running, Giorgio Armani’s Acqua for Life campaign continues to help Unicef provide safe, clean drinking water for children.
Since 2010, Acqua for Life have supported Unicef's water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs in Burkina Faso, Guatemala, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nicaragua, Nepal, Tanzania, Togo, and Vietnam.
In 2018, Acqua for Life selected WaterAid to join its existing partners, in light of WaterAid’s technical expertise in the WASH sector. WaterAid is working to make clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere, within a generation, and is currently working across 28 countries to change the lives of the poorest and most marginalized people. In addition, WaterAid has a global presence, a collaborative approach, and a commitment to finding sustainable solutions to the water crisis around the world. Between 2021 and 2024, the Acqua for Life initiative is supporting six WaterAid projects focusing on schools and health care facilities in India, Madagascar, Malawi, Nicaragua, South Africa and Uganda.
In 2020 Acqua for Life joined forces with Water.org, a global non-profit organization that helps people get access to safe water and sanitation through affordable financing, such as small loans. One of the major barriers to safe water and sanitation is affordable financing. As an answer Water.org, via its WaterCredit Initiative®, helps bring small loans to those who need access to affordable financing and expert resources to make household water and toilet solutions a reality. Communities can access financing, take control of their future, and break down the barriers to safe water and sanitation. These solutions last because communities have a personal investment to see them through, as well as access to financing to make repairs over time as needed.With more than 25 years of experience and insight, Water.org uses market-driven financial solutions to transform lives with the mission of ending the global water crisis. To date, Water.org has empowered more than 30 million people worldwide with access to safe water and sanitation.
In partnership with Acqua for Life, Water.org is working to transform the lives of 85,000 people in Tanzania with access to safe water and sanitation.
