Clean water. Clear futures.


The Gazelle Foundation knows that clean water is the key to life. But no one knows this better than the people of Burundi. For more than 11 million people, access to clean water means access to better health, stronger community, jobs, education, and most of all: hope.

Together, we can transform lives and make it possible for an entire country to break from the grips of poverty and flow freely once again.
