Approximately one billion people live without access to clean water and electricity. That is, every seventh person.
If you were one of them, you would need to spend about 4-5 hours each day to get water and fuel to heat and boil it clean.
With clean water at home, the opportunity to get time to go to school or work increases, which is a way out of poverty.
Together we make a difference
Latour started a collaboration with Swedish Solvatten in 2018.
Both employees and Latour companies contributes with money to Solvatten. Every year before Christmas Latour matches the same amount that the Latour companies and its employees together have collected during the year. Since 2018 we have collected more than two million SEK that have gone directly to Solvatten containers transported to ongoing projects in Burkina Faso and Uganda.
Latour's goal is to reach 3,000 families during a three-year period, which corresponds to approximately 24,000 people.
