Since inception in 2007, Vox United has organized it’s efforts around various poverty alleviation initiatives. That’s no longer the case. The Vox Board of Directors recently moved to embrace sustainable clean water development as the exclusive organizational emphasis.
“Our team is truly excited about the refinements we’ve made recently. We have a process that is repeatable, and most importantly sustainable. Our goal is to cut through the complexities and provide simple and sustainable water solutions that give life to communities globally.” said Vox Board Member, Brad Ruiter.
“It makes perfect sense. Investing in sustainable, clean water access is the single, most strategic thing we can do to empower the poor in developing countries. We’ve personally seen how clean water can give health to the sick, create opportunities for schooling, facilitate gainful employment, strengthen economies, and best of all – connect people to God.” said Vox’s Executive Director, Brian King.
Vox Engineer, Brad Haan added, “Clean water is the building block of everything else that people need in these remote areas of the world. I’m glad I can use my gifts and abilities to do something about it.”
Over 240,000 people in rural sub Saharan Africa have received access to clean water through Vox efforts over the past 4 1/2 years
“There is strong consensus around this move,” added Brian King. “Everyone on our team is personally involved and committed.”
“As I get older, it is becoming more and more important to make an exponential difference,” says Vox Vice President, Jeff Kammeraad, “….clean water makes a huge difference…period.”
Vox’s goal is to reach 1/2 million people with sustainable clean water by the end of 2015. The team is currently developing a new website and marketing materials that will reflect the new transition.
