Build a Pool - Dig a Well

Paradise Pools and Gardens is a company with a passion for doing beautiful things with water. Locally, this goal translates into building beautiful custom water features and landscapes for our clients. Globally, it translates into partnering with World Vision to help bring clean water to places around the world where it is desperately needed.

The need is great. There are 748 million people in the world who still only have dirty water to drink (WHO & UNICEF, 2014). In the developing world, more than half the deaths of children younger than five are related to illnesses caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation and hygiene; 1,600 children die every day from diarrhea caused by unsafe water (UNICEF, 2013). In addition, girls in rural communities often spend up to 6 hours every day transporting dirty water for their family’s use (UNICEF, 2013), robbing them of the opportunity to attend school.

As the largest non-governmental provider of water in the developing world, World Vision is making a huge impact to change these dire statistics. They are currently bringing water, sanitation, and hygiene to a new person in Africa every 30 seconds! Paradise Pools and Gardens is proud to join with them in their efforts by contributing $500 of the profit from every new pool project to the Africa Water and Sanitation Fund.

We hope that you will give Paradise Pools and Gardens the opportunity to create something beautiful with water in your own backyard, and that you will also join us in doing something beautiful with water around the world!
