Getting Water is easy, right?

Well, not for some. Whilst for many of us, it’s hard to truly imagine what it would be like to not have access to clean water every day; 663 million people in the developing world lack access to water – and some spend up to 6 hours a day collecting it for their families. Can you imagine what that would be like if you had to choose between having a job and having the water you need to survive?

Partnering for a crucial mission

Since 2015, Stella Artois and Water.org have partnered for a  critical mission – to ensure that everyone in the world has time for what’s important to them. Through their partnership, they have helped provide access to clean water for more than 1 million people in the developing world to date, with even bigger goals in mind – to reach 3.5 million by 2020.

#GiveThemTimeBack

The purchase of a Limited-Edition Stella Artois Chalice helps provide 5 years of clean water to someone in the developing world. This year’s collection features hand-crafted designs inspired by Mexico, India and the Philippines, created by female artists from each of these countries.

This story shows how Stella Artois supports Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation, specifically Target 6.1: “By 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.”
