International Aid Fund
Simply, ESN’s International Aid Fund is a sector of ESN which steps away from the business for a moment and focus’ on the needs of the less fortunate. Each year we work in conjunction with a different charity, set a specific goal, and work together as a community to raise money to reach these goals.
This year: 2012
Goal: To raise enough funds (US$15,000) to build THREE clean water wells in THREE different communities who lack access to clean water.
By continuously striving to practice good business via educating ourselves, making smart and conscious decisions, effective marketing strategies, and of course networking, it is a shared hope that we may find success in our individual industries so that we can support ourselves and our families while doing something that we love.
Unfortunately, for almost a billion people around the world practicing good business is not on the every day schedule for one reason: unclean water. This means a billion people (about one in eight of us) must focus their day to day efforts on finding clean drinking water to ensure their family’s survival, and those who do not find it will likely find themselves as one of the 42,000 people that die every week due to lack of safe water and sanitation. It is for this reason, among the many other effects of unsafe water, that ESN has chosen to take up the cause and raise funds to provide clean water by building clean water wells. But we can’t do it alone, you can make a difference as well.
ONE IN EIGHT PEOPLE ON THE PLANET DON’T HAVE
ACCESS TO SAFE, CLEAN DRINKING WATER.
