Last year, we met a young photographer traveling around the world. His name is Kole Purdy and his goal was to capture the stories Kenyans who do not have access to clean drinking water. At just 19 years old, Kole is incredibly talented and has a knack for capturing portraits with meaning.

At Westcott, we believe in the power of a photograph. A photograph can touch people's hearts and tell a story that desperately needs to be told. Photography can change the way people see the world and can make us aware of issues that we may have overlooked.

Inspired by Kole’s generosity, we have decided to donate 10% of our sales from January 23rd through January 29th to support Kole’s photography journey and his chosen non-profit, Just One Africa.

Just One Africa is a 501(c)3 non-profit partnering with local leaders in Kenya to create sustainable solutions for orphans and vulnerable children by addressing the clean water crisis and creating hope through care, education, and community development.

Just One Africa’s mission is to partner with local leaders to create sustainable solutions for vulnerable children and the clean water crisis. Our vision is to inspire the individual to effect change, resulting in thriving communities with access to clean water and with the capability of providing for their basic needs.

1 in every 10 people on Earth do not have access to clean drinking water. Just One Africa is striving to change that.
