Introduction

To access water in the village of Ronga, women and children walked for hours to reach military barracks or cross a border through a conflict zone, putting the most vulnerable at the greatest risk. Physical and sexual assaults of every kind occured on a regular basis.


Not having access to water was one thing. Being attacked while trying to obtain it was heartbreaking. Nobody deserves to be subjected to such brutality, certainly not the women and children in Ronga, and yet they continued to go back out there, day after day, without ever complaining. They accepted it because they had no choice.

With your help, we have given them a choice. We gave them back their dignity and security.

In addition to providing clean drinking water, the people of Ronga now have opportunities in education, gardening and health that would be impossible without a reliable source of safe water.

Today is the first time for us to meet each other.  Today, our friendship begins. - Mayek (chief of Ronga)

When we sold out of the ORCHID scarf and Ronga received clean water, everyone was safer and healthier. You can purchase another of our ‘limited edition’ colours in order to support one of the many other villages in need.

security in the area has improved greatly because women are no longer forced to trek through high-risk zones in search of clean water.

Gardens have been implemented and villagers are much healthier, cleaner, happier and safer

There are plans to open a school and health centre in the future

People from Ronga are also sharing their water with neighbouring communities
