Acqua for Life
Armani continues its Acqua for Life Program for the sixth year running and extends it to new communities in 2016.
For the 6th year running, Armani is repeating its commitment to the Acqua for Life development program with Green Cross International, a global initiative which, since 2011, has already given 108 communities in 8 countries and 3 continents access to drinking water, i.e. 880 million liters of water provided.
Every year, since 2010, as part of Acqua for Life, Armani has educated public opinion on issues related to water, raising funds and acts in the field, in partnership with Green Cross International and UNICEF, by installing water points, latrines, rain water collection, water filtering and purification systems, in areas that lack water or drinking water, a natural element fundamental to life.
In 6 years, Acqua for Life has set up projects worldwide which have sustainably transformed daily life that had hitherto incurred mortality, disease and deprived children of an education owing to the lack of water or access to contaminated water for a large proportion of the community. The main victims of this situation are the most vulnerable: children as well as women.
With Acqua for Life, families reclaim the right to drinking water and sanitation recognized by the United Nations in 2010. They have water to drink, prepare food every day, wash, water crops and for their livestock and children can attend school more regularly. Women have more time to focus on their children, dedicate time to their literacy and be productive for their community instead of having to fetch water.
