Team Classic Cottages

A Preschool, A Classroom & A City

Classic Cottages is sponsoring a team of people organized to run in an effort to raise funds to support the clean water initiatives of Connect For Water.

Specifically, these funds are targeted to help in Africa with these projects;
Pride and Purpose Preschool, A Classroom in Botswana and place as many as
300 Kohler Clarity water filters in schools in the Municipality Lepaterique, Honduras.

The Idea:

A few of the team members at Classic Cottages LLC decided they wanted to raise money for a good cause that is closely linked to the industry in which they work. Kimberly Musser and Elainna Wright have formed a running team to run the Baltimore Half Marathon on October 20th.

Several of their preferred industry partners have graciously sponsored this initiative. Additionally, they are asking their networks to participate by donating in order to grow this cause and see how many funds can be raised leading up to race day.

Pride n Purpose Preschool

Pride ‘n Purpose (PnP) is Ulusaba Game Reserve’s charitable arm committed to helping disadvantaged communities living adjacent to the Sabi Sand Reserve. Originally established in 2003 by members of the Ulusaba family. PnP now benefits over 35,000 people across seven communities. PnP’s philosophy is that people are most effectively helped if they are empowered to help themselves.

A Classroom in Botswana

Mabele Primary School educates about 176 children from ages 6-12 years old. Mabele is about 40 miles from Kasane. All of these communities are on the northern border of Botswana bordered by Namibia by the Chobe River. to the East by Zimbabwe and barely touching Zaire at the Zambezi River which flows into Victoria Falls.

The Municipality of Lepaterique

The Municipality of Lepaterique, has a total population of 13,415 inhabitants. Their water sources come from the mountains where the main rivers form. The responsible institutions do not carry out water quality analysis to ensure that water is safe for consumption, nor do they carry out actions for the protection of water sources and wastewater treatment.

Having the Kohler Clarity Systems will not only provide a clean and consistent source of drinking water but will create a way for water to be stored and used in the classrooms and households.

The Kohler Clarity System filters out more than 99% of bacteria and protozoa. One Clarity system provides up to 40 liters of safe water each day – enough for a small family.

Created with the same high standards of quality and design as everything Kohler creates the Clarity system is incredibly simple to use and maintain.
