Without tea, there is no water. Yet one in nine people on the planet lack access to this basic human right. Numi Foundation works to bring clean, safe drinking water to Numi Organic Tea sourcing partners around the world. We work in collaboration with these farming communities and take a long-term view on all our projects; instead of years, we think in terms of generations.
Our first H2OPE project was in rural Madagascar, where over 3,500 people living in farming villages used to drink water from the same river they used as a toilet. Our next effort is ensuring the 6,000 residents of largest organic, fair trade tea estate in all of India have access to the clean water they need to thrive.
