Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6-9th at CES 2016
LAS VEGAS--Today Jasco Products, leader in consumer electronics and home automation products, and Water4, a leading non-profit organization providing access to clean drinking water to a quarter million people and counting, announced that they are partnering together at CES 2016 to save lives and benefit thousands around the world. Visit booth #9005 (Central Hall, LVCC) from January 6-9 to see how Water4 and Jasco are working together to transform the quality of life for people and entire communities around the world by helping rapidly increase the number of people with access to safe water.
"Water4 and Jasco are both innovators in our respective industries. Jasco is changing how people simplify their lives and connect their homes with disruptive solutions, and Water4 has fundamentally transformed the traditional charity model for solving the global water crisis," said Cameron Trice, Jasco CEO. "Through the strategy of empowerment and sharing knowledge, resources and technology, we believe we can make a difference together."
It's More than Charity. It's Opportunity.
CES is a place to find all the latest technology that is changing the world. Jasco proudly supports and invests in technology that is changing the world into a cleaner, safer place to live. The global water crisis claims 3.4 million lives each year. Water4 transforms communities by putting a sustainable solution in the hands of local men and women. The model offers jobs and training to local community members to maintain pumps and continue drilling new wells, creating a sustainable model and ongoing business opportunities.
"Water4 goes into an area and we train the locals how to drill water wells on their own," said Water4 Founder, Dick Greenly. "By teaching a group to drill water wells, we leave behind the tools and a ready-made business for them. Instead of giving them a water well, it gives them a job, it gives them purpose, and it gives entire regions clean water all in the same package."

"We believe in the remarkable power of individuals committed to working together towards a shared vision," said Trice. "Together we are making an impact. We're not just growing a company. We're changing the world and making it a better place."

Water4 is a 501(c) 3 public charity headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and was founded in 2008 with the mission of providing at-risk, indigenous people access to clean water. As the Water4 approach is implemented in impoverished areas, the economic impact is felt immediately, as water well-related jobs are created, fresh water sources are established, and the health, welfare, and education of local people are greatly improved. Water4 is active in more than 15 countries and has helped more than a quarter million people gain access to clean water.
