GWA wil play soccer for " The Water Entrepreneur " program in Benin.

On Saturday 10 June, GWA will play soccer together with 7 other teams from other organisations or companies, during the annual soccer tournament of Eijkelkamp Foundation to collect money for The Water Entrepreneur Program. Location: Giesbeek, Sport complex " De Does" from 1 pm - 5 pm. The aim of this program is to support 40, preferably female, unemployed graduates to develop a water enterprise with which they offer the rural population of Benin sustainable access to safe drinking water. The idea behind The Water Entrepreneur is to create a situation in which income can be generated from making and maintaining shallow wells. This will provide homes in the Alibori region in Northern Benin access to safe drinking water for a reasonable payment. The Water Entrepreneur’s returns will then be distributed. A savings account will be established to enable the Water Entrepreneurs, the source and the drinking water pumps constructed over these to be maintained and, in time, to enable installation of new wells or development of new ideas. The entrepreneurs will also contribute a percentage of their income to Stichting De Eijkelkamp Foundation to create an investment fund to help train and support new Water Entrepreneurs.
