Water for Kids 20th Year Celebration

This year, we are proud to be celebrating our 20th year of delivering safe water and sanitation to vulnerable communities in Africa and what better excuse do we need to raise funds so we can do more? Just in the last 10 years, we have delivered safe water to over 40,000 people including schools, clinics, market places and villages. Please help us to make our 20th year, a record breaking one. This is what your donation can fund: £5 is the labour for one man for 1 day.
£6 is one bag of cement.
£10 is the labour for a skilled mason for 1 day.
£50 would buy ½ a load of sand.
£100 would pay for the bricks for a dam to protect the water.
£200 would pay for the transport for carrying all materials to the site.
£1000 is the average cost of protecting a water source for a community of 500 people. So £2 per person.
£2000 would provide Rain Water Harvesting for a school of 500 children.
£6000 would provide a new Borehole for a community or a school.

REMEMBER 86 pence of every £1 goes directly to the projects.

The next project we need funding for is:

WUWABI WATER SOURCE, Iganga, Uganda, where a community of 500 people are currently using an unprotected water source, with a long distance to walk for an alternative source.
It is a natural spring, flowing continuously and with protection by Water for Kids, it will become a safe water source, providing safe water for drinking.
