After the resounding success our Grads of 2019 had with fundraising to build a water well in partnership with the Obakki Foundation, Collingwood, as a whole, deemed it an important legacy to continue. Not only are we providing clean drinking water to communities within South Sudan who are in desperate need, we are also bringing about an awareness of Sustainable Development Goals and providing students with leadership opportunities to fundraise and share information with their peers. Due to Covid, we were cut short in reaching our fundraising goal to build a second well, however, we are committed to completing this project!
Obakki believes in sustainable partnerships with local artisans from around the world. They believe in creating relationships to ensure local livelihood, providing training and support to ensure their partners are valued and respected and investing in community development. We love this model.
When you purchase any item from Obakki, partial proceeds will be allocated to our fundraising account. Please don't forget to enter COLLINGWOOD in the discount code!
