“We are fortunate to work with Voss Water of Norway to continue to raise awareness and context about our #1 concern, the scarcity of clean water resources in Sub-Saharan Africa. Just like a drop creates ripples, we believe that clean water is the foundation for development – change starts with a drop. Providing access to clean water, sanitation, and hygiene creates a ripple effect in a community, enabling people to improve their own lives,” states Kara Gerson, executive director of The Voss Foundation.
Judges include Jewel, who, in addition to her music career, spearheads Project Clean Water, her charitable initiative to bring clean water to those in need around the world. Since 2009, Project Clean Water has partnered with Voss Foundation on the “Give A Drop” campaign. Kara Gerson, executive director of Voss Foundation, David Hessekiel, president and founder of the Cause Marketing Forum, and Saran Kaba Jones, founder & executive director of FACE Africa serve as the judging committee.
Submissions accepted at http://www.onewellatatime.com. Entries must express an understanding of the water scarcity issues; particularly how having access to clean water will positively affect daily lives in Sub-Saharan Africa. Winner will be announced by June 22, 2015.
