Planet Water Foundation partners with Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation to build a clean water system
Planet Water Foundation partners with the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation to bring clean and safe water to remote, impoverished villagers in Northwestern Cambodia through the installation of a community-based water purification system. Teams from both organizations deployed their first water project in one of the village’s largest primary schools, bringing clean water to over 800 children and villagers.
A devastating portrait of Israel’s stranglehold over Palestinian water resources. Stark figures present that three million Palestinians who live in the West Bank only have access to 15 per cent of the water contained in the aquifers beneath their territory.
Challenge21: 21 Peaks, 7 Continents, 3 Years…Water For People
In a ground-breaking series of expeditions, Challenge21 co-founder, Jake Norton, will attempt to climb the Triple Seven Summits - the three highest peaks on each continent - to raise money and awareness for Water For People www.waterforpeople.org
In August, 2011, seven climbers went into the remote Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda to climb the third highest peak in Africa: Mount Stanley’s Margherita Peak (5,109 meters/16,763 feet), via the Kilembe Trail.
The climb was about far more than climbing, however. As the first expedition of Challenge21 www.challenge21.com, the Rwenzori climb was about creating change in our world.
Dedicated to raising awareness worldwide about the water and sanitation crisis, and to raising funds for non-profit partner Water For People www.waterforpeople.org, Challenge21 founder, Jake Norton, is focused on climbing the Triple Seven Summits, or the three highest peaks on all seven continents.
The 2011 Rwenzori Expedition was a huge success in all regards, with fundraising goals shattered and much awareness raised.
The Rwenzori team included: Collin Barry, Ned Breslin, Dan Fillipi, Charlie Lovering, Barb Neary, Tim Ryan, and Jake Norton.
