World Tourism Day 2015

Travelers all over the world visit different parts of the globe for whatever reason, whether it’s to sight see, visit family, educational purposes or for a celebration.

buildingHowever, when tourists are thinking about where their next destination may be, they might stop and consider visiting a developing country. Although it wouldn’t be the ideal luxury getaway, it would open their eyes to a whole new picture.

Having the opportunity to see how others live first hand and being able to help them is a truly a noteworthy experience that is unlike anything you will come across.

On September 27, every year, World Tourism day is celebrated, as a day to recognize that tourism actually helps drive the economy and promote a more sustainable life for all.

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Burkina Faso are organizing jointly the Official Celebration of World Tourism Day 2015, on 27 Sept. 2015 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

“Its purpose is to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value” according to the World Tourism Organization Network.

These are all ideas that Pure Water puts a great deal of effort toward every day. We want to see more communities work together to help create a better, more maintainable life for all. Although our work is focused mainly on clean water practices, we highly support any cause that contributes to the health and well being of all.

We also support donors and advocates seeing firsthand how they can help and how their donations are already helping others. If you are interested in a hands on trip to Haiti or Honduras, visit our website or email us today!
