A new way to tackle the global water crisis
Los Angeles & New York, 21 Feb 2022 –- FLIT Invest, an automated impact investing app, has partnered with The Thirst Project, the world’s largest youth water organization, to tackle the global water crisis.
FLIT Invest has announced its first NGO partnership with the Thirst Project. The global water crisis is one of the most ubiquitous problems currently impacting our planet, impacting over 4 million people worldwide. It will take the cooperation of non-profit, for-profit, and governmental intervention to effect change. By partnering with Thirst Project, FLIT Invest hopes to educate and mobilize the socially-conscious generation of young people to end the global water crisis through social action and sustainable investing.
“The partnership with Thirst Project will enable us to have a reputable charity as our partner who can provide thought leadership in the clean water space. Our clients could also double down on the impact and donate to a charity where every cent goes towards solving the global water crisis. In terms of impact, with Thirst Project $25 is all it takes to give one person clean water for life,” said Richard Papp, FLIT Invest Co-Founder. “Together, we will achieve meaningful change on both the for-profit and non-profit world to create a world where clean water is accessible to everyone.”
FLIT Invest offers a Clean Water investment theme that allows users to make a measurable impact. Learn more about the global water crisis and how you can make an impact through your investments here.
