The Project

Since 2016, Tumi and Waves for Water supported together over ten humanitarian projects. In the beginning of 2019, Tumi has invited a group of carefully chosen influencers who share the brand social commitment to implement 100 water filters in Langrug, South African community where a third of the inhabitants had no access to clean water.

This September, the TUMI Crew continued the mission in Nepal where the influencers did a trek to bring water filters to the remote areas in top of the mountains. To bring this project further, TUMI joined 1% for Planet to support W4W activities
