Dear supporters of the Safe Drinking Water Project in Bolivia,

We are overwhelmed by the surge in support and donations we received over the past two months. As a highlight, we achieved the goal of raising 2,000 £ through donations of the Global Giving UK website, as a result of our participation in the “Alive and Learning Challenge”. Thanks to this great achievement, our project was included in the winner’s page (which can be found here:, as one of only five projects (out of over 60 participants) which achieved this goal.

We therefore want to thank everybody who helped us reach this goal: the project team, the fundraising team, and especially you, the donors. Thanksk to you, every day more schools are enrolled in the project, and every day more children obtain access to the healthiest of all drinks: safe water.

In this sense, a happy “cheers” to you from the SODIS Foundation. We will soon update you on project progress on the ground.

Best regards, Matthias Saladin

NB: As another highlight, we just received donation number 100 and quickly are approaching the 10,000-dollar-limit of total project donations. Thank you!
