785 million people lack basic access to clean and safe drinking water.
Access to clean water means education, income and health - especially for women and kids. Learn more
Cuely has joined forces with charitywater.org to change that.
It's simple! Cuely sends snack-sized break reminders throughout the day. For every break you completed (including the water break and any other type of activities such as stretch, breathing, and many more), we will donate a week of clean water through the Charitywater.org.
It's crazy to think about it, but it only takes $1 per person, per year to access clean water in part of the world like Malawi and Mozambique in Africa. For those of you interested in learning more, here is how the operation and math works.
The average cost to build a "shallow wells" (lower in depth) in Africa is about $8,000 USD. For this amount, a hole can be drilled and a pump installed that allows the community to access safe and clean drinking water. This type of well, unlike a regular well that could be easily contaminated, is much safer to operate. In addition, the village is provided with sanitation and hygiene training to minimize the risk of contamination. Each well is able to serve about 2,000 people and will generally last up to 20 years if properly maintained. Learn more from thelastwell.org.
There is no perfect math but if we assume each well will serve 400 local villagers (instead of the 2000 max capacity) and last 20 years, then the average cost of providing a year of clean water access is around $1 per person.

Spending too many hours staring at screens is seriously impacting our eyes.
Good practices for any practice - why stretching makes you better at every job.
