On July 2010, founders of the new footwear brand Freewaters, Eli Marmar and Martin Kim, sat down with UntilThen.org co-founders Phil and Dalene Hamer and professor and climatologist Russell Qualls. Within a few hours, Projectfreewaters was born.
Since its inception, Freewaters has always been a footwear company grounded in the commitment to make this world a better place. When it came time to decide on which social initiative they would become involved with, it just made perfect sense to help with the worldwide water crisis.
Six months after their meeting about creating their own clean drinking water project, the five were off to Kenya to put their plan into motion.
Fast forward to the present: Projectfreewaters has successfully completed six wells in Tulwet, a small rural village in Kenya.
With over 3 million people dying each year due to unsanitary water, Projectfreewaters’ work has just begun. Freewaters hopes that with their small contribution to global water project initiatives, they are able to spark inspiration and a call to action towards helping in this growing world crisis.
