The Voss Foundation
Voss Foundation is dedicated to providing access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene as a means to enable community-driven development in Sub-Saharan Africa and raising awareness of the ongoing need in the region.
1/6th of the world’s population does not have access to clean drinking water.
Nearly two million people die each year from preventable diseases caused by unclean water and lack of adequate sanitation.
748 million people lack access to clean water and 325 million are in Sub-Saharan Africa. That's more than the entire population of the United States in 2014.
In just one day, women and children spend 140 million hours collecting water. That's enough time to build the Empire State Building 20 times.
The Voss Foundation helps to meet these needs through a unique approach which ensures local ownership and long term sustainability.
The Voss Foundation’s primary targets are women and children with special focus on adolescent girls.
With multiple projects currently underway in Africa, the Voss Foundation is poised to provide meaningful aid.
Save The Date! Voss Foundation's Second Annual Women Helping Women Hamptons is on August 1st at 12:30pm at Tutto il Giorno in Southampton.
#VFWHW is a luncheon to improve the lives of African women and their communities by providing access to clean water, sanitation and hugiene; and to celebrate global female empowerment.
