Inspired by the work of CouldYou?, Houston-based rapper Bizzle, created an album entitled “Well Wishes” and donated 100 percent of the profits to CouldYou? to bring water to the 1,500 people living in Gumbane Village in Mozambique for the first time.
CouldYou? worked with the Chissano Foundation to build five water towers with tanks across the village. They also established a structure for village leaders to carefully monitor and manage the usage of the water. In April 2016, the water towers were complete. This milestone was celebrated through multiple events including an inauguration by former President JoaquimChissano’s Foundtaion and a visit from Bizzle and his wife. In seeking a sustainable solution, CouldYou? then acquired a small water company in November 2016. The company delivers water to Gumbane Village as well as to other clients. 100% of the profits from this water company will be used for other community projects and potentially to help start another company to fabricate bricks.
