Students Engineering the Future through Sustainable Water Projects in Guatemala.
CW4K is proud to support Engineers Without Borders at Marquette University and their humanitarian water projects in Guatemala.
CannedWater4Kids (cW4k) is a 501(c)(3) charity based in Sussex, WI. The organization’s purpose is to ensure all children have access to sustainable, clean, safe drinking water. cW4k funds its initiatives with cash donations, grants, and through the North American sales of their premium drinking water in aluminum cans and bottles. Ninety-five cents of every dollar collected goes to support, fund, and deliver clean water programs.
Projects include assisting the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee’s Engineers Without Borders in bringing sustainable water purification solutions to the highlands of Guatemala, and support for well/water tank and Bio Sand Filter projects in Zambia, Kenya, and Tanzania, Africa. Recent disaster and hurricane -relief efforts include the sending of truckloads of canned drinking water to Michigan, Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico.
