Triangle Tube recently partnered with A Drink for Tomorrow to create a newly drilled well and hand pump to draw clean water for the village of Labala, located in Botswana, Africa. Approximately 100 feet deep, the well will provide a community of around 400 people with clean, safe drinking water -although more people are expected to migrate here once the water is made available to the village. Progress of the project, which was made entirely by Triangle Tube’s donation, is available on A Drink for Tomorrow’s Web site, www.adrinkfortomorrow.org.
Triangle Tube decided to use its success in manufacturing hot water systems to fund the construction of the well in an impoverished community with no access to clean water. Triangle Tube President Daniel Lasserre, reflects upon the company’s contribution, “Because we produce water heaters and boilers, water is vital for Triangle Tube. However, it is even more essential for all people to survive. Nowhere is this more evident than in remote villages without clean water like Labala. We know that this will provide a foundation for their success, as it has for Triangle Tube.”
Grateful for the company’s participation in the project, A Drink for Tomorrow plans to continue working with Triangle Tube and other businesses to bring life-giving water and hope to communities in dire need, said Stephanie Weaver, A Drink for Tomorrow’s founder.
Triangle Tube is said to be the first business to step up to work with A Drink for Tomorrow to fully fund a water project.
