More About the FACE Africa WASH Gala:
The FACE Africa WASH Gala, held annually in New York City to raise awareness and funds for clean water projects is also a celebration of Africans and Friends of Africa making a difference in their respective industries and communities. This year, our goal is to raise $500,000 to provide Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programs and facilities to communities in rural Liberia and Nigeria.
The theme for this years gala Water Fuels the Future is more than a statement, it’s the recognition that the availability of clean drinking water is a prerequisite to achieving all of the other development indicators like health, education, gender equality, growth, community commerce, agriculture, and self sufficiency.
