Since 2018, we've worked with Armani Beauty's Acqua for Life initiative to deliver clean water and decent sanitation to schools and healthcare facilities in Madagascar, Nepal, Papa New Guinea, Nicaragua, Uganda, India and Malawi.
Acqua for Life improves access to clean water and decent sanitation for people living in water-scarce regions around the world, with a focus on reaching women and girls
Together, we work with communities to build decent toilets and reliable, sustainable water systems. To ensure the benefits continue long after we've left, we support local residents to learn about good hygiene and sanitation practices, as well as how to maintain the new systems in the long term.
Acqua for Life has so far donated more than €2 million to support our work.
For the past two years, Armani Beauty has given a new meaning to Black Friday by donating 30% of profits from purchases made on the day – and raising over £400,000 for projects delivering clean water and decent sanitation to healthcare centres in Uganda.
What our partners say
Access to clean water is undoubtedly one of the greatest challenges in the 21st century.
The Acqua for Life initiative began in 2010, the same year that the United Nations recognised access to water and sanitation as a human right. It was born from a philosophy as simple as it is fundamental: that water is one of the most important elements to life, yet 1 in 10 people around the world still don't have clean water close to home.
