Helping to transform lives

Thanks to UK Aid Match funding as part of our Well Good Appeal we are trialling a reinforced pit latrine in 20 communities across the next two years!
We are confident that these latrines will not collapse during the annual floods, so families can enjoy continued use leading to better health.

Helping to transform lives

Thanks to UK Aid Match funding as part of our Well Good Appeal we are trialling a reinforced pit latrine in 20 communities across the next two years!
We are confident that these latrines will not collapse during the annual floods, so families can enjoy continued use leading to better health.

Getting the team moving

UK Aid Match funds helped buy a much needed new vehicle for our local partner in Zambia, essential for visiting remote villages and schools to conduct hygiene and sanitation training, and to monitor the impact of the work.

The Well Good Appeal

During the 2014 appeal, Village Water supporters raised a massive £287,392, meaning 11,496 men, women and children now have safe water to drink, a decent place to go to the toilet and better hygiene habits.

The UK government matched this amount, and we are now supporting a further 56 schools and 70 communities with safe water and lasting sanitation.

“This is a weekly boarding school, so the absence of safe water for drinking poses a high risk of a communicable disease outbreak. A hand pump here is not a want but a need and the earlier it is installed the better.”

Mishirundu Primary School - Kalabo District

In 2015, the UK Aid match grant helped us work in Mishirundu Primary School in Kalabo District of Zambia. The school has 424 people and 6 teachers. Our local partners recently visited to check on progress since last year. We were delighted to find an excellent hygiene and sanitation record since the training. Our aim is to ensure that there is at least one latrine and tippy tap for every 50 pupils and in Mishirundu School the ratio is now 1:30 pupils.

During the visit our local partners tested the pump functionality to ensure the sustainability of the well. The results showed the pump is in great working order, taking only 2 strokes to produce water and filling a 20 litre container in just 49 strokes, well within our recommended functionality levels.
