The social company calculates in 553,000 euros the social return of the investment of the 83 projects it has carried out since 2016 for access to water and sanitation.

AUARA, a social company that targets 100% of its dividends to bring drinking water to countries that lack it, has generated since its birth (2016) more than 56 million litres of drinking water provided in populations of 17 developing countries in Africa and Asia. This results in a savings of more than two million hours than the people of these communities, especially women and girls, are destined to go for water, sometimes of doubtful sanitary quality, walking under the sun and carrying heavy drums.

 

“It is estimated that the person responsible for water collection in each family, almost always women and girls, devotes half an hour a day to this task in sub-Saharan Africa and 30 minutes in the rest of the world. This not only puts them at risk for attacks or insolations, but also prevents them from engaging in other tasks such as studying or seeking employment opportunities. Thus, lack of water becomes a health problem, but also social,” he explains. Antonio Espinosa de los Monteros, CEO and co-founder of AUARA.

The purpose of AUARA is to bring water there where it is needed and from 2016 to date has developed 83 projects, thanks to partnerships with partner companies and the 14 social entities with which it develops in the field and performs long-term follow-up. Thus, the social company has helped to improve the lives of more than 51,000 people who have access to safe water and infrastructure such as sanitation, wells or water pumps. Viajes y turismo

Coinciding with the World Water Week, organized by the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and held between 24 and 28 August in a virtual way, AUARA has for the first time measured the social return of the investment of its 83 projects, which result in a savings of 553,000 euros for those communities, in terms of avoided health costs (a better access to safe drinking water avoids hospitalizations, serious illnesses and deaths) and working hours generated by those who no longer have As the SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation of the United Nations 2030 Agenda recalls, three out of 10 people lack access to safe drinking water services and six out of 10 lack access to safely managed sanitation facilities and AUARA contributes with its activity to reduce this impact.

 

“From our birth we work to alleviate the greatest poverty that exists: the lack of drinking water. And that is possible thanks to the trust of the collaborating companies and the social entities with which we carry out the projects in the field with long-term vision. It is true that 2020 is being a very complicated year for all, but from AUARA we will continue to work to bring drinking water to those who need it most. That’s why we’ve turned to the #AguaparaHospitales initiative, also offering our bottled water to the sick and health personnel in our country during the toughest moments of the Covid-19 pandemic,” he says. Espinosa de los Monteros.
