When we help a community get access to safe water, it's no exaggeration to say it's the start of something life-changing.

It begins with access to safe, clean water, but it goes on to affect every aspect of people's lives – in ways you might not expect.
  • Water is education

    Spending time in the classroom is something many children around the world can only dream of. When they no longer have to collect water for their families every day, that dream can come true – opening up a world of new opportunities.

  • Water is health

    Every hour 16 children under age of five die due to diarrhoea. Safe water helps babies make it through their vulnerable first five years, gives new mums the best possible chance of survival and gives everyone a fighting chance of avoiding waterborne diseases like typhoid and diarrhoea.

  • Water is livelihoods

    Access to safe water gives people the time and resources to find jobs, learn new skills and set up their own businesses, helping them lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

  • Water is time

    It’s estimated that across India women spend about 15,00,00,000 work days per annum fetching and carrying water for their families. But when they only need to carry it a few steps from the nearest waterpoint, that time is freed up – giving them the chance to laugh, to play and to go to school.

  • Water is transformation

    When a school gets taps for the first time, it's always a great cause for celebration. Safe water is changing lives in not just one, but 200 schools in Raichur, southern India. Attendance has improved drastically and pupils are enthusiastic about going to school again.

  • Water is dignity

    Water is the thing we take for granted. It’s the feeling you get from being able to wash regularly in a clean, private place. And it’s the knowledge that you can relieve yourself, safely and discreetly, in a proper toilet instead of out in the open.

  • Water is life

    We never get tired of talking about water. Why? Because, quite simply, we can’t live without it. Your contribution today to make access to safe water accessible for communities we work in means unlocking opportunities for them. Support us!
