Inspired by VTLO’s GRIT value, Integrity, which emphasizes being good stewards and seeking better approaches, the Environmental Stewardship cause area focuses on access to natural resources and better resource management, and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goal, Clean Water and Sanitation.
Creating access to natural resources.
VTLO supports World Vision‘s clean water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) initiative, which commits to reaching everyone they work with, everywhere in the world by 2030. In support of their 2022 goal of fulfilling this commitment in Rwanda first, VTLO will fund efforts in two ways. First, in recognition of VTLO’s 30th anniversary in 2020, the company will donate funds through World Vision’s matching program to provide access to clean water for 30 people in Rwanda. Second, VTLO will make additional donations to the program for every hour of volunteering by VTLO employees, up to 150 hours.
