Why is Giving Day important to the AguaClara mission?


Giving Day is extremely important to AguaClara Cornell as the donations received from this event allow our team to continue their mission of providing safe water on tap to communities in need. These funds will specifically be used to fund lab supplies employed in our groundbreaking research, 1 L/s plant prototypes, summer internships and our annual team member trips to Honduras to learn more about the treatment plants and local communities.
