Tel Aviv, Israel, January 14, 2022 – ASTERRA announced the launch of their charitable give-back program called ASTERRA Gives Global. The first recipient of the award’s inaugural year is Water-2-Social.
“Each year, ASTERRA will give to deserving charities as part of our company vision to be better citizens of a more sustainable Earth,” said Elly Perets, chief executive officer of ASTERRA. The amount of donation is $2644, which is double the number of leaks found by Recover in 2021 by ASTERRA’s Italian channel partner, 2f Water Venture SRL.
Water-2-Social was selected because it developed an innovative program that rallies water industry leaders such as ASTERRA to support individuals with disabilities. The primary focus is individuals on the autism spectrum. Water-2-Social is based in Italy, where there are about 400,000 people with autism, and one child of every 80 newly born children is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. Water-2-Social is an organization founded by Franco Mansenello, owner of 2f Water Venture.
“2f Water Venture is concluding a successful year of saving water resources across Italy, and we are proud and excited to partner with ASTERRA on its innovative ‘ASTERRA Gives Global’ program, which translates that success into impact on the wider community – land Water-2-Social in particular,” said Franco Mansenello. For each km of water network analyzed, 2f Water Venture pays two Euros to Water-2-Social.
