Change lives with safe water in the Philippines

Tetra Tech

Each year at our annual meeting, Tetra Tech selects a charity that employees can support to change the lives of people in developing countries.

This year, as part of Vision 2021, we are supporting Water.org in the Philippines to help provide people like Zeny (read her story below) with access to safe water and sanitation services.

Thank you for helping to create healthy communities and a healthy future.

• $5 gives 1 person in need access to safe water or sanitation
• $10 gives 2 people in need access to safe water or sanitation
• $25 gives a family in need access to safe water or sanitation

A lasting safe water solution for Zeny's family

Zeny in the Philippines

Zeny sells scrap materials for a living and her husband is a taxi driver—together they make about $80 a month. The couple have a little girl. They used to pay a neighbor more than 15% of their monthly income for water. While this spared Zeny walks to find water, allowing her to be home with her daughter, it was too expensive to sustain.

Zeny was happy to learn they could get a small, affordable loan from their local bank to get a water connection at home. Now the family pays less than 5% of their monthly income on water.

When you live on less than $3 a day, a savings of $8 a month is significant. By empowering families like Zeny’s with affordable access to safe water at home, they are also empowered to break their cycle of poverty.
