Individual & community Fundraising

As a small charity working in sub-Saharan Africa, we depend more than most on the support we receive from generous and discerning individuals who want to see value for money and high impact.

We keep our overheads low, and we’re proud that 90p of every £1 donations including individual fundraising  is spent directly on our programmes in Malawi.

Individual fundraising

Are you a regular runner? An avid adventurer? Perhaps you’re a gifted gamer? There’s a multitude of ways you can help end water poverty in Malawi by doing what you do best – whether that’s taking part in a local run, an international challenge, streaming your favourite game on Twitch or hosting a dinner party for friends. You can find us on Go Fund Me to set up a sponsorship page and get started. If you have any questions or would like any support us, you can email us at

Community Groups

Why not bring your community group together with a shared vision of empowering rural communities in Malawi? 

Whether you’re a school, university society, faith group or rotary group we’d love to hear from you! Our friends across the country have organised dinner parties, fun runs, bake sales and challenges to fundraise for us.
