Water-to-Go is excited to announce a new partnership with Oasis Overland. They are an adventure tour company that operate adventure trips from 5 days to 10 months duration in Africa, South America and Asia. Travellers who join them are looking for something a bit different and something off the beaten track.
Oasis Overland realise the important role they have to play in ensuring that their trips are run responsibly to maximise the potential benefits to local communities and minimise the negatives. In alignment with their philosophy of responsible tourism, they have decided to partner up with Water-to-Go to ensure that their clients travel responsibly and safely as well as reducing their carbon footprint. Oasis Overland are actively promoting Water-to-Go as essential kit on their tours so that their members have access to safe, clean drinking wherever they are.
Water-to-Go is a supporter of Oasis Overland and has supplied Water-to-Go filtration bottles to them, and are proud to extend the association. We are giving their members an exclusive discount on Water-to-Go products and furthermore, Water-to-Go will match that percentage discount as a donation to the charities that they support. Water-to-Go is excited and delighted to support Oasis Overland as a referral partner and its efforts and goals with their charitable projects and hope that together we can make a difference.
This partnership will have more far-reaching effects than just to the people who go on their tours. Oasis Overland is committed to working with local operators and service providers and supporting communities with their trade. As such, Water-to-Go will be helping Oasis Overland to support the following projects worldwide:
Toilet Twinning ~ Travellers on Oasis Overland trips will be aware that they often pass through, and camp in, remote areas where toilet facilities do not exist.
2.5 billion people across the world don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet. For people in poor communities, a hole in the ground is literally a life saver – protecting women from the risk of attack as they find somewhere private to squat, and shielding children from preventable diarrhoeal diseases.
Oasis Overland have just joined forces with Toilet Twinning to build seven new latrines for communities in Africa. Toilet Twinning raises funds to enable people living in poor communities to have clean water, a decent toilet, and to learn about hygiene – a vital combination that prevents the spread of disease, reduces the number of deaths among children, and brings hope for the future.
Hupenyu Hutsva Children’s Home in Harare, Zimbabwe –
Oasis Overland have made donations of food, clothing, computers & sports equipment to this home & are involved in ongoing projects. In 2008 we funded the installation of a bore hole to enable the Home to be far more self-sufficient in food production & enabling the children to practise essential horticultural skills. They also paid for gardening tools & seeds.
Since 2008, they having been running an event, fondly known by our crew as ‘Kids Week’. Essentially we use our trucks and crew to take all the children out on a day trip and end up with a big party back at the Home. Many of the children rarely leave the compound where they live & the trips have enabled them to see some of the sights their country has to offer. Our last trip was in December 2017, when we took the children to the Imire Game Reserve in our overland trucks, finishing off the event with a big party at the Home-complete with candy floss and Bouncy Castles! We’re never quite sure who enjoys these trips out the most-the children, staff, or our crew!!!
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Kenya ~ This trust has played a significant role in the conservation of Kenya’s wildlife and has pioneered strategies to reverse the extinction of the endangered black rhino and provides extensive rehabilitation programs for elephant, and other animal orphans. Projects include de-snaring, mobile veterinary services, animal welfare, water conservation and community outreach. Oasis Overland sponsor an elephant, Kamboyo & three of their trips visit this project.
Water-to-Go are delighted to be able to support several charities through our various partners and tour companies. Water-to-Go stands for so much more than just filtering water. We stand for protecting people’s health by giving everyone access to their basic rights of safe, clean drinking water anytime, anywhere; and also protecting the planet by producing an alternative to single-use plastic bottles. We seek to work together with organisations that share our aims and goals and together we can change the world, one bottle, one person at a time.
