The We Are Water Foundation
The We Are Water Foundation, driven by Roca, was established in 2010 with two key goals in mind. The first one is to promote awareness and encourage debate among the public and organizations on the need to create a new culture for water, to enable the equitable development and sustainable management of the world's water resources.
The second goal is to carry out a whole host of actions to counter the negative effects of the lack of adequate water resources. The foundation's fields of activity include involvement in infrastructure, education, health and research, concentrated in the world's most deprived areas.
The Foundation has carried out 50 projects in 24 countries so far, helping more than 675,000 people. Some of the countries in which the Foundation has worked are Ecuador, India, Brazil, Colombia, Guinea Bissau, Nepal, Morocco, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, Chad or Philippines in collaboration with renowned international organizations such as Educo, Vicente Ferrer Foundation, Intermón Oxfam, Unicef, Women for Africa Foundation, Pies Descalzos Foundation or World Vision International.
