Alert Labs Matches Donations to Indigenous Youth Training Program

Alert Labs, maker of smart building sensors that reduce water and energy waste, is launching a campaign today to support the Water First Internship Program for Indigenous Youth and Young Adults. The Water First Charity trains First Nations people to become water treatment operators and advocates for clean drinking water in their communities.

 

From World Water Day (March 22) to Earth Day (April 22), Alert Labs will match donations from its customers to Water First.

Alert Labs and Water First released a video about the challenges facing First Nations communities the positive impact that the Internship Program has had on graduates.

 

Amy Waboose of White Fish First Nation is a graduate of the program and said, she is now better able to provide for her family and help her community with the knowledge of water treatment she has gained. The work she does supports generations of families in her community.

First Nations communities in Canada don’t have the same access to safe drinking water enjoyed elsewhere in the country.  "Alert Labs feels strongly that access to clean drinking water is a basic human right," said George Tsintzouras, CEO of Alert Labs in a video to announce the campaign. "That's why we'll be matching donations from our customers to Water First."

We hope this campaign is wildly successful and Water First receives an enormous amount of donations - just in case, Alert Labs reserves the right to cap their matching donation to a reasonable gift that is solely determined by them.
