Water is Life
The Water Colors Life Project is making a significant, life-changing difference for people in Africa—one million people to be exact.
Swipe to learn about how clean water impacts health, education, community, and art.
Water Colors Health
Access to clean water significantly reduces the risk of waterborne diseases, decreases the likelihood of malnutrition, and promotes proper hygiene within communities—all leading to better health and bigger opportunities.
Water Colors Education
Access to clean water not only gives children time to attend school, it also provides a safe learning environment. With access to latrines and education about good sanitation and hygiene practices, students have the resources they need to grow into healthy adults.
Water Colors Community
Women and children almost solely bear the burden of collecting water for their families and communities, walking long distances to the nearest lake, river, or pond to collect unsafe water. Providing access to a reliable clean water source allows women and children the opportunity to become active participants in their communities.
Water Colors Art
Clean water provides more time and stability. Without the daily chore of collecting water, and the worry and strain of the health concerns that come from drinking unsafe water, people have time to explore creative outlets. Kalahari dug a borehole at Chitungwiza Art Center in Zimbabwe, providing the artistic community with a reliable water source. Artists use the water to sculpt awe-inspiring pieces that provide a source of income. In fact, Kalahari Resorts display millions of dollars worth of traditional African art throughout our authentically African-themed resorts.
Celebrating the Joy of Water
Todd Nelson, owner and CEO of Kalahari Resorts, always says, "there is never, nor will there ever be, a more beautiful place on Earth than Africa."
Everywhere you look, there is joy and celebration. We partnered with pop stars Rae and Bongi to create a music video celebrating the beauty and vibrancy of Africa, and the joy that clean water brings. Enjoy "Water Dance"!
