World Water Day 2021: Valuing and Saving Water with ACE
World Water Day, held on 22 March every year, focuses on increasing public awareness of the importance of freshwater and sustainable management of water sources.
This year, the 29th World Water Day’s theme is Valuing Water. It is a call to recognize all the benefits provided by water – whether in an economic, social, or ecological dimension – and to use water in an environmentally conscious manner.
2.2 billion people live without access to safe water (source: World Water Day United Nations). In Indonesia, the population’s need for clean water is only fulfilled by 21.8% (source: Indonesian Water Institute), whereas clean water plays an enormous and complex role in health, hygiene, productivity, and the welfare of communities as well as our natural environment.
Understanding this issue, ACE collaborated with Solar Chapter foundation in February 2021 to provide clean water in Biau, East Nusa Tenggara. Every day, Biau villagers, which consist of at least 219 families, have to walk more than 5 km to fetch clean water for their basic daily needs. ACE and Solar Chapter thus built solar panels, water pumps, water distribution pipes, and water reservoirs as a solution that is sustainable and low on electricity costs for Biau villagers.
In addition to the CSR program in severe water-crisis areas in Indonesia, ACE also supplies products that are practical and comfortable to use, designed to make it easier for you to help conserve water in daily life, including but not limited to:
