Extend The Shelf Life Of Sweets With Oxygen Absorbers
We hear the term oxygen absorbers everywhere but do we actually know what they are and what they are used for? Oxygen Absorbers are small packets containing iron powder, which are placed along side products like electronic and leather items, pharmaceuticals and most importantly, food items, which become stale after some time. This happens due to the presence of oxygen in the packages containing these products. It will react with the food items/pharmaceuticals to turn them rancid and change their physical/chemical combinations respectively.
Clean water helps keep kids in school, especially girls.
Less time collecting water means more time in class. Clean water and proper toilets at school means teenage girls don’t have to stay home for a week out of every month.
How do we tackle the water crisis?
We work with local experts and community members to find the best sustainable solution in each place where we work, whether it’s a well, a piped system, a BioSand Filter, or a system for harvesting rainwater. And with every water point we fund, our partners coordinate sanitation and hygiene training, and establish a local Water Committee to help keep water flowing for years to come.
