Andrew McAllister (Water4Ethiopia Enterprises Ltd)
Entrepreneur: Andrew McAllister
Business: Water4Ethiopia Enterprises Ltd
Water4Ethiopia is an independent charity raising funds for clean water projects in Ethiopia. In order to raise additional funding and awareness for the charity the business is bringing out the Water4Ethiopia Bottled Spring Water range to sell in the UK, under Water4Ethiopia Enterprises Ltd.
Each bottle sold provides one Ethiopian with clean water for one year. There is a code on the back of the bottle which tells the consumer who they have just helped. All profits from the bottled water go to Water4Ethiopia the charity and the business takes no money from the venture.
Andy McAllister of Water4Ethiopia
Water4Ethiopia works with the NGO in Ethiopia, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church Aid Commission, to construct clean water projects in Ethiopia in the form of capped springs or wells with hand pumps. The Water4Ethiopia charity was founded in 2009 and, to date, has given 450 Ethiopians clean water. All water bottles are PET recyclable and the business is looking to bring out a range of glass bottles in the future.
