Clean Water for All

Marriott Rewards & Protea Corporate

There are millions of people around the world for whom the supply and accessibility of water is a daily struggle. In the scenic town of Stellenbosch, near Cape Town, South Africa, there are a number of underprivileged communities without running water, and the people in these communities must walk a far distance to collect water from a dam to bring home to boil and filter out the impurities. The Marriott Rewards team and associates from Protea Corporate offices worked with LifeStraw water filters, Relate Bracelets and The Pebbles Project to provide safe and clean drinking water to one community’s school, farm and in their homes, and also to provide work for unemployed people in Cape Town’s townships.
