Here at Nine Twenty, our staff spend most of their day on the phone or in meetings talking to our clients and candidates, so it's really important that we keep them well hydrated!
As a result, we decided to invest in watercoolers from AquAid.
Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to the Africa Trust. These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ - a modified version of an age old Chinese rope pulley system. One such pump is currently being installed in Africa on our behalf and it will be a much needed source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.
Our organisation’s name will be proudly displayed on our well and we look forward to adding some photos and letters of thanks from the villagers to our site in the near future.
To date, AquAid have built over 5,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Liberia; and have donated in excess of £13 million to charity. Nine Twenty are hugely proud to be part of this fantastic initiative, and would encourage others to do the same so we can continue to increase the provision of clean water supplies in Africa.
