One in every 10 people globally lack access to clean water, with 1 in 4 using a drinking water source with fecal contamination. It’s time we change this! This World Water Day, March 22, American Eagle Outfitters is joining forces with Planet Water Foundation for PROJECT 24.
PROJECT 24’s mission is to build 24 water filtration systems in 24 hours, bringing clean water to 24,000 people across 5 countries including Cambodia, Colombia, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines. American Eagle Outfitters has sponsored one of the 24 clean water towers that are part of this initiative providing critical support to a community in need in Greater Delhi, India.
American Eagle Outfitters is honored to step up to the challenge and play an important role in helping change the lives of 24,000 people in a span of just 24 hours. Join us and together we will abolish water poverty, one community at a time!
In efforts to help bring clean water to communities, we are donating 15,000 dollars to build a water tower at Sangat Green Public School in Deri Machha Village. Ajay, a Grade 6 student at the school said, “I carry my drinking water from home as school water is dirty, and it smells bad. I feel sick for days after drinking water at school.”
American Eagle Outfitters is proud to help bring clean, filtered water to thousands of people in Deri Machha. You can help provide clean water to even more kids in need by visiting www.planet-water.org.
Happy World Water Day!
