Water Connects Us!
We are FACE Africa. We are working to bring clean water, sanitation and hygiene programs to remote communities in Sub-Saharan Africa. We believe water is a catalyst for change and transformation and the first step to lifting communities out of a cycle of disease and poverty. Our WASH (Water Health, Sanitation & Hygiene) Gala will bring together 300 guests including corporate leaders in the emerging markets sector, young professionals, entertainment figures and taste-makers to raise awareness and funds to support our work providing access to clean water across sub-Saharan Africa. Our theme for this years event is “Water Connects Us”: highlighting our shared dependence on water for survival and its role in connecting the diaspora to the continent.
