You can give the gift of clean water

Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene is one of the most fundamental basic human rights. 1 in 3 people globally do not have access to safe drinking water (World Health Organisation). You can transform a rural community in East Africa by giving the gift of a safe, clean water source. 

When you provide access to a safe water source you help to: 

  • Reduce the number of water related illnesses and ultimately deaths;
  • Reduce the risk of attack on young girls who have to fetch water alone;
  • Decrease the number of hours spent collecting water and therefore allow children to attend school and gain a quality education.
