Every person deserves clean drinking water
But millions worldwide LACK a safe, clean drinking water supply.
The water crisis is one of the most urgent needs in the developing world today.
With your help, we can provide suitable, accessible and sustainable water solutions to the poorest and most marginalised people in developing countries in small, remote rural villages.
Your donation gives a clean water supply to communities in our global projects

Access to clean drinking water transforms people's lives
Every well is constructed close to village dwellings; generally, an average of 300mtrs or less is the goal whenever possible. This saves people time on water collection and more time to direct to health & well-being, education & wealth creation.
Water & Health
Every day people die from water-borne diseases. Access to clean water reduces the incidence of water-borne illnesses such as diarrhoea and dysentery almost immediately.
Water & Conservation
Our African projects have a conservation element. A borewell in a conservation area impacts both humans and wildlife where there is conflict over water resources.
Water & Education
Children can't learn adequately if their school has no water.
A borewell in a rural school impacts 250 to 2,000 pupils and has a broader impact on its surrounding community.
