Water Connects Us!
We are FACE Africa. We are working to bring clean water, sanitation and hygiene programs to remote communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. We believe water is a catalyst for change and transformation and the first step to lifting communities out of a cycle of disease and poverty. Currently focused on Liberia where unsafe drinking water is one of the major causes of child mortality, FACE Africa will be expanding its WASH Programs to Nigeria this year. Since 2009, we has completed clean water, sanitation and community health projects in Liberia that have impacted over 100,000 individuals.
In commemoration of United Nations World Water Day on March 22nd, FACE Africa is hosting it’s 8th Annual WASH Gala, our signature benefit event, which brings together 300-400 guests including corporate leaders in the emerging markets sector, young professionals, influencers, taste-makers and friends of Africa to raise awareness and funds to support our work providing access to clean water across sub-Saharan Africa. Our theme for this years event is "Water Connects Us": highlighting our shared dependence on water for survival and its role in connecting the diaspora to the continent.
