Our Commitment to Bring Clean Water
to 1 Million People in Africa

Today, nearly 1 in 10 people around the world do not have access to life’s most basic necessity: clean water. That’s why Kalahari Resorts & Conventions has pledged to bring clean, safe drinking water to one million people in Africa. Join us and charity: water as we bring the health, stability and joy of water to those who need it most through The Water Colors Life Project.

Kalahari Resorts has pledged to bring clean water to 1 million people in Africa in partnership with charity:water. This equates to a commitment of $50 million.

Water Colors Health
Access to clean water significantly reduces the risk of waterborne diseases, decreases the likelihood of malnutrition, and promotes proper hygiene within communities — all leading to better health and bigger opportunities.

Water Colors Education
Access to clean water not only gives children time to attend school, it also provides a safe learning environment. With access to latrines and education about good sanitation and hygiene practices, students have the resources they need to grow into healthy adults.

Water Colors Community
Women and children almost solely bear the burden of collecting water for their families and communities, walking long distances to the nearest lake, river, or pond to collect unsafe water. Providing access to a reliable clean water source allows women and children the opportunity to become active participants in their communities.

Water Colors Art
Clean water provides more time and stability. Without the daily chore of collecting water, and the worry and strain of the health concerns that come from drinking unsafe water, people have time to explore creative outlets. Kalahari dug a borehole at Chitungwiza Art Center in Zimbabwe, providing the artistic community with a reliable water source. Artists use the water to sculpt awe-inspiring pieces that provide a source of income. In fact, Kalahari Resorts display millions of dollars worth of traditional African art throughout our authentically African-themed resorts.
