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. Our WASH (Water Health, Sanitation & Hygiene) Gala will bring together 300 guests including corporate leaders in the emerging markets sector, young professionals, entertainment figures and taste-makers 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.

CELEBRATION. community. inspiration

Our Annual WASH Gala is more than just a party. It's a gathering of friends. It's an evening dedicated to giving back. It's an annual celebration of Africans and Friends of Africa, coming together to make a difference. Our community of guests and supporters share common values, interests, and goals. We look forward to welcoming you where you will get the opportunity to learn more about the critical work FACE Africa does in promoting clean water access in Sub-Saharan Africa. You will leave feeling connected, inspired and empowered to give back.
