Xylem has announced that its long-time partnership with Planet Water Foundation has provided more than one million people with access to safe drinking water and hygiene education‚—a milestone that was achieved through 10 years on a shared mission to create stability and equity for communities that lack access to clean water.
Through the years, Xylem has sponsored the deployment of over 500 clean water projects in 14 countries across Asia-Pacific and Latin America. Over the last decade, more than 1,600 Xylem employees have served as Planet Water project volunteers to install systems and engage local residents in education programs.
Planet Water’s work centres on bringing clean water to the world’s most impoverished communities through the installation of community-based water filtration systems and by implementing water health and hygiene education programs, with a specific focus on schools, children, rural areas, and disaster response.
Planet Water’s AquaTower solution filters contaminants from local water sources and can supply up to 1,800 people with their daily drinking water requirements.
