All hands to the pump

The
University of Leeds
is contributing to help fund the installation of water pumps in South Africa.

By
providing non-profit, bottled water brand One Water at meetings and
conferences, the University has already funded a pump in the village of
Nqubeni, South Africa, and is well on the way to funding a second.

“The
University endeavour to source ethical products and One Water is a simple idea
that is changing the lives of thousands of African people. The changes the
water pumps make to communities is incredible and we’re very proud of our
involvement,” says assistant director of catering and conferencing at the University of Leeds, Beverley Kenny.

While
costing no more than other water brands, One Water generates thousands of
pounds to build unique wells in Africa, supplying
free and clean water to local communities.
