Menstruation, a natural process in all healthy woman, keeps girls away from school. You can now stop this, barter your adverts for girls’ time in school, see details
What if, for 7 adverts published in the local leading dailies, a community of 1000 people could get water filter retrofitted to their water source eg borehole, water pounds etc? They Could! See how.
What is companies could get rain water purification facilities, each of the size of a small domestic fridge, for advertising? They Could! Consequently, many in the low income settlements would get plenty of low cost municipal water, especially during rainy season. See how and what the facility is.
What if a village could get rainwater harvesting system for every 7 adverts published in local leading dailies? They could! Many villages and schools in the villages, currently water-starving, could have close clean water systems, see how.
