Help someone to get safe drinking water for the first time and make a dream come true


We work closely with our partners overseas and with the local people to ensure our projects are sustainable. Projects in Uganda and Zambia are managed on behalf of Water for Kids by local environmental health professionals.

This is a working partnership between environmental health professionals in the UK and environmental health professionals in Zambia and Uganda.

We also fund projects which are managed by other organisations, which we know and trust. These organisations are encouraged to involve health professionals.
