About Water for Kids
Water for Kids is a small charity which provides safe water for the first time. It works with communities, especially in Uganda and Zambia, to dig wells, protect water sources, build latrines and carry out hygiene education. This reduces the spread of diseases and improves the health and wellbeing of the whole community.
Water for Kids is currently funding other organisations to provide water and sanitation in Kenya, and Tanzania. We have also worked in Peru, The Gambia, India, Rwanda and Sierra Leone. All our projects save lives.
Water for Kids has very low overheads, it spent 87% of its income directly on projects in 2013/4.
The charity was set up in 1996 by Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) and our projects in Uganda and Zambia are managed by local EHOs.
We work closely with our partners overseas and with the local people
to ensure our projects are sustainable.
Much of our work has been achieved through the generosity of the Corporate Supporters below, we would like to thank them for their help in saving people's lives.
