A new HSBC Water Programme initiative, which launched on World Environment Day, is now underway in Mauritius. The ultimate aim is to foster interest in the environment and Citizen Science.
HSBC Water Programme partners with Fundación Cruzada Patagónica to improve access to safe water for over 4,000 people living and working in the Mapuche region, Argentina.
In addition to the three main Partners, the HSBC Water Programme funds charities managing local water projects proposed by HSBC employees. HSBC have committed USD 34.7m to support 62 projects in 35 countries through this initiative.
The projects supported are diverse, but in many cases provide local, practical, sustainable solutions, and education, to empower communities to help themselves.
Look out for the case studies on each project, being updated in the next few months, or see a full list of projects and countries.
