Viva con Agua raises awareness on the issues surrounding access to clean drinking water by organising fundraising events such as concerts, parties, readings, exhibitions and fundraising walks as well as football benefit games and much more.
Furthermore, Viva con Agua wants to get young people interested in the topic of access to water and development in general. In order to push this idea, we organise events in schools, such as Water-Workshops, in which the youngest generation gets involved and actively engaged in the topic.
The funds raised by the various events go entirely to Welthungerhilfe who guarantee a professional realisation of the projects. Welthungerhilfe is a private, politically independent, non-denominational relief non-profit-organisation which works under a voluntary Board of Directors and the patronage of the German President.
We monitor and evaluate the way our funds are generation and then used for the projects in country.
At Viva con Agua, football stands for the notion of fair play, transferred to the fair and respectful treatment of the people around us and our environment. For us, football symbolises sportive effort, which is needed to bring about change.
Football is to be understood as a sportive Esperanto, a language lifting borders and differences between people.
