Niet zomaar water

Bij Boes & Beis willen we graag een stukje teruggeven aan de maatschappij. Daarom hebben we geïnvesteerd in een filter systeem voor kraanwater, waarmee we gefilterd water aan kunnen bieden zonder verpakkings- en transportkosten. Daarnaast doneren we per glas of fles €1,- aan watertorens in Benin.

More than just water

At Boes & Beis we would like to give something back to society. That is why we have invested in a filter system for tap water, with which we can offer filtered water without packaging and transport costs. Next to that, we donate an amount of €1,- per glass or bottle to water towers in Benin.

Plan Futur

PlanFutur is a foundation that works for underprivileged young people in Benin.

Benin, on the west coast of Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world.

The population consists of almost 60% young people, 48% of whom are illiterate: the majority of young people do not follow further education after primary education, because of the registration costs that are often not affordable for families.

Many young people live in poverty, have limited access to education and health car and

see few opportunities on the labor market.

PlanFutur is working to ensure that adolescent young people, especially the girls, have access to education and the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Water Tower in Siliko

Provide Access to Drinking Water 
The aim of this project is to provide access to drinking water for rural communities. Drinking water is the most important resource for human survival; still in some parts of the world millions of people lack access to clean water. In Benin, the rural population is still facing water shortage and half of them have to walk more than an hour to reach a water source.

Isolated Villages
Siliko, on the Ouémé River
Siliko is an agglomeration located in the municipality of Adjohoun, which lies partly on the Ouémé River, but the isolation of its villages reinforced the lack of access to drinking water. During the execution of our sanitation project in Siliko, it was clear that drinking water is an urgent need in the region.

Gender Issues

The impact on women and girls

Women and girls are disproportionately affected by poor water and sanitary facilities.

In regions where no one has the luxury of tap water at home, women are usually responsible for water collection within the family. Girls miss school to make the long walk to fetch water from the well and some of them experience harassment on the way. 

The poor quality of water, which is often collected in ponds, also causes transmissible diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid and cholera.

Partnership with Local Authorities

Ensuring sustainability

A good drinking water supply is not only for the current population, but also for future generations.

To ensure the sustainability of this project, we work in partnership with the local authorities.
