Our pledge is to bring clean water to one million people in Africa.

Let's transform lives together.

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, in partnership with charity: water, has pledged to bring clean water to 1 million people in Africa through The Water Colors Life Project. That is a commitment of $50 million.

703 million people worldwide do not have access to clean water. That's twice the population of the United States. The majority live in rural regions, where they devote hours each day to the arduous and time-consuming task of gathering water for their families. Oftentimes, the water they collect carries diseases and parasites.

If we work together, we can end the global water crisis in our lifetime.

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"!
