At Vitanova®, it is our respect for the planet and its people that shapes our actions. Vitanova proudly supports and sponsors several organizations designed to create real, positive change in the world and announces its support of Numi Organic Tea Impact programs, which includes H2OPE Madagascar, H2OPE Assam, and the Water Crisis.
Vitanova pays it forward by donating 10 percent of proceeds to preserve botanical wisdom and knowledge within the communities we partner with around the world. Like our own Vitanova botanical growers, the Numi Tea farmers are the stewards of organic, healthy nutrition. Vitanova discovered that Numi Tea shared a similar ethos and learning of the incredible work that the Numi Foundation is doing to restore dignity through providing clean water access to its partners, Vitanova wanted to support them in this important work.
The Numi Foundation works to bring clean, safe drinking water to Numi Organic Tea sourcing partners around the world.
Why is this important?
- Did you know that 1 in 10 people do not have access to clean, safe drinking water?
- Or that more people die from lack of water and sanitation each year than other forms of violence, including war?
- Did you know that 4,000 children die every day from water-related diseases?
- Despite the dangers, women and children usually bear the responsibility for collecting water for the family. Many are required to walk up to six hours a day to collect and carry it.
“The Numi Foundation is the manifestation of what we believe is needed to improve the lives of our community. It’s how we extend our intentions of goodness and fairness to the greater world.” — Ahmed Rahim, Numi Foundation Co-founder
