Akvo partners with Live Earth for "the largest global water initiative in history”
The Live Earth Run for Water was announced a couple of days ago – it’s the biggest campaign ever to focus on the global water crisis. Akvo’s right in the middle of it – we’re Live Earth’s technology partner, and from today all of the projects that people can raise funds for are visible through the Akvo platform. Check out the first wave of Live Earth projects here. In one swoop, the value of projects in Akvo more than doubles and as the Run for Water channels funds to them, we’re now looking at providing around 800,000 people with access to clean water for the first time, all through small projects.
