The Young Professionals of the RSA are excited to announce their new partnership with Surge For Water, an organization founded in 2008 striving to provide clean water and sanitation to communities all over the world. In 11 years, they have impacted over 1,000,000 people in 11 countries through rehabilitation of wells, implementing customized UNICEF water, sanitation and hygiene; as well as their signature hygiene education programs. They are able to see influence in the noticeable improvement of health, income, sustainability, and over all well being, so the Young Professionals are very anxious to work along side Surge in their mission to invest safe water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions to help end the cycle of poverty.
With the support of Kevin Howes, Executive Director of the RSA, member Shelby Marshall encouraged the Young Professionals to have a positive impact through a partnership with Surge For Water and commit to donate $2,500, going towards repairing a well in Kaberamaido, Uganda. The Obale Well, located in the Omid Community of Kaberamaido, services 750 water users, 377 men and 418 females. 100% of every dollar donated will go towards funding this well, or the next most urgent need, and providing sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions to this community. By donating to repairs and the protection of this natural spring, we can help reduce water related illnesses, such as parasites, and ensure safe water to families to keep them from traveling long distances for alternative water sources.

The Young Professionals are excited for the RSA’s contribution and hopeful for their future impact in Uganda.
