Malawi Water Project
Providing Clean Water, Saving Lives
Malawi is a small landlocked country in southeastern sub-Saharan Africa, and is among the world's least-developed countries.
The goal of the MALAWI WATER PROJECT is to improve health and alleviate suffering due to water borne illness by providing clean drinking water to vulnerable children and families in rural Malawi. The Project aims to improve health in rural communities by training the local villagers on proper sanitation and hygiene, and to assist local teams in the construction and installation of Biosand Water Filters, which provides safe water to households. The Biosand Filter (BSF) is a simple household water treatment device that is made of low cost local materials, and was originally designed at the University of Calgary, Canada. It is proven to be very effective in removing disease causing pathogens and can last a lifetime!
Centex gives annually and is a proud supporter of the Malawi Water Project.

Child Haven International
We believe it's very important to give back.
If Centex could have one wish, we'd like to see kids in unfortunate circumstances get the help they need to not only survive but succeed.
We direct our focus towards development through a strong relationship with Child Haven International.
We give annually and we're working on putting together a 'Child Haven Week' at all of our locations. With every purchase for the week, customers will be able to donate a Loonie ($1.00 CAD) towards the orphanages run by Child Haven and Centex will match every donation. It's coming soon, so stay tuned for more updates.
Inspired by the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, Child Haven International assists children and women in developing countries, who are in need of food, education, health care, shelter, clothing, emotional & moral support.
