“Dear friends of One Drop,
I share Guy Laliberté's vision of a world where everyone has access to better living conditions. There is no doubt as to how vital One Drop's mission is, to ensure sustainable access to safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene services. Vital now more than ever.
I join a creative team of experts supported by an impressive network of partners, collaborators, and donors. My appointment begins during uncertain times, as the pandemic hits some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. But it is also a time when the world as a whole comes to realize the vital importance of adopting sanitary measures and “barrier” behaviours like handwashing with soap and water. Promoting healthy behaviours like these allows communities to be better equipped to face global health challenges such as those connected to COVID-19. This has always been a priority for One Drop. Now, it’s one for me, too.
With this in mind, the One Drop team and I commit to continuing with our Social Art for Behaviour ChangeTM approach, which ensures the sustainability of water access projects.
Thank you for welcoming me into the One Drop family. And if I may quote Guy : “Together, day after day, we are proving that even in the face of adversity, every action — big and small — can change the world.”
Together, let's keep turning water into action.
