At SixHats we feel very fortunate to be partnered with the amazing people over at Thirst Project. Together we have helped over 102,000 people with Clean Drinking Water For an Entire Year! We have now funded three wells with the donations made from our hats. So incredible!
The Water Crises
663 million people on our planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. That's crazy!
Every 21 seconds a child dies of water-related disease
There are lots of different methods and technologies that exist to provide solutions to the water crisis, but this tried and true method is without question the most sustainable. Hand pump borehole wells don’t rely on any external source of power. These projects are not dependent on communities’ ability to pay for ongoing fuel costs to run a generator and aren’t dependent on unreliable solar panels, which often break and cannot easily be repaired or replaced by community members (and are a high-risk for theft). Unlike so many so-called “latest and greatest” technologies, which often rely on parts that cannot be locally-sourced & technologies that require unavailable specialists in the rural areas we work in, community members can be trained to maintain and repair these projects themselves for decades to come. Obviously we only have ten years of data to draw from so far, but, if properly maintained, our wells should last 40+ years.
How it Works
Each Hat Sold Provides 6 People With Clean Drinking Water For An Entire Year. Here's how:

Drill a well
