We first worked with charity: water last year when we raised £9.5K to build a well for over 200 people in a remote village in Ethiopia. The project is currently under construction supported by members of the community and we look forward to sharing some news on its progress soon.
What’s better than one well? Two wells! So this year we are fundraising again for charity: water, with the intention of supporting a water project in Ethiopia which will begin in 2018. In ten years charity: water have completed projects in 24 countries bringing clean water to 7 million people and with it improvements in nutrition, gender equality, education and economy. Like Be One Percent, business partners and private sponsors cover all operating costs meaning 100% of individual donations go towards projects. Regular progress reports, GPS data, community information and pictures keep donors (like you!) up-to-date with the projects they have funded. If you can’t wait that long, watch this video to meet Berekech and see the change access to clean water had on her life.
