Mothers and children spend hours walking to a reliable water source to cover basic human needs, such as drinking, cooking and cleaning. Or worse, they’re forced to drink contaminated water, leading to disease and often death.

For most people, a scarf is a stylish accessory. For villages in South Sudan, it’s the gateway to a better life.

More than 300 million people in Africa don’t have access to clean water.

The Obakki Foundation is bringing clean water to villages in need, one scarf at a time. For every 500 of these “limited edition” scarves sold, the Obakki Foundation will drill a well, bringing clean water to 1500-2000 people in each community. To date we have drilled 13 wells and impacted over 25,000 lives with our Scarves for Water program.
