WE ARE ENDING WATER POVERTY FOR GOOD.
We are an experienced and innovative water charity
We work in Malawi in southern Africa, which is one of the poorest countries in the world. There is a water crisis in Malawi which affects some of the countries most isolated and under-served communities, and we are on a mission to end water poverty across the country by 2030.
Some of our results to date...
Our approach to ending water poverty
Enterprise, not aid.
Economic problems require economic solutions. Where skills are needed, there must be an incentive. Through our water entrepreneur initiative, we can simultaneously improve rural livelihoods and access to safe water.
Handups, not handouts.
Malawi has a young and ambitious population. Our research showed that people wanted to invest in their own assets, and have the means to do so.
independence, not reliance.
Our programmes are designed with sustainability at their core, with lasting, locally led solutions to water poverty.

BUILDING RESILIENT COMMUNITIES IN MALAWI
Water collection is a heavy burden, and one that falls primarily on the shoulders of women and girls. With half of the country’s community water pumps non-functional at any given time, women and girls are having to walk further and further, just for clean water.
We are building resilient communities by training entrepreneurs to repair broken community water points, and servicing them so that they don’t break again. Also, we are supporting preschools with the hygiene facilities and education to ensure children can grow and learn in a healthy environment.
We took part in the Big Give 2022 Christmas Challenge and raised a £61,513!
