What we do

Just providing safe water is not enough to reduce water borne diseases, so we also support hygiene education and sanitation training. Communities build their own simple sanitation facilities, including pit latrines with tippy taps for hand-washing, before a new water-point is installed. We train everyone to look after the new water-point to avoid break downs.

The difference we make

Time and again the people we work with tell us how their children can concentrate on school, how they are not going to the health centre anymore and how the knowledge they have gained has allowed them to take positive action to change their lives. And, we can prove it. In 2015-2016, diarrhoea dropped by 87% and girls’ absenteeism from primary school dropped by 85%.
