How clean water empowers people


Marie-Stella-Maris’ mission is to provide access to clean drinking water. They offer natural care products and mineral water. Per purchase, a fixed amount of money is donated to water projects worldwide. One of them is a clean water project in Mweteni, Tanzania.

Our take

The foundation asked us to show the impact of this ongoing project. A serious topic. So we captured the people and their stories with respect and dignity. While shooting, we felt that this was not about poverty, but a visual story on hope and optimism.
