Water is a huge part of our daily lives. We rely on it not just for drinking but to keep ourselves, our clothing and our homes clean. Yet there are communities all over the world who need it not just for the same reasons as us but to grow their crops, feed their populaces, maintain the animals that are their livelihood and lead healthy lives. Yet these communities who need clean water the most, all-too-often have the least access to it. That’s where we come in.

What we do

Our work takes us to some of the poorest areas of Asia right through to the Middle East, bringing access to clean water to those who need it most. We work with communities around the world, providing clean and sustainable water to those who need it. We provide easy access to clean water by installing hand pumps, water wells, tube wells, and secured boreholes to communities so that they can get the water that they need quickly and easily without the need for long and perilous walks to unclean sources.

Where we Work

Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Kashmir, Yemen

Empowering communities

Our work is all about helping communities to not only be safe and healthy but to be empowered. With access to clean water they are not only able to live free of water borne diseases or illnesses due to poor sanitation and hygiene but are able to live self-sufficiently. What’s more, we work to help ensure that the young girls who would traditionally be sent on long journeys to collect water are instead allowed access to education.

This is only possible because of our supporters and donors who support our great work. Please continue to support us. Your donation saves lives.
