Living Water Africa fights water poverty by funding the building, fixing and maintenance of water wells in rural Africa

 

Water Poverty

What is Water Poverty?

Being in water poverty means that your nearest source of water is far away, unclean or unaffordable. Many people in Africa, especially in rural areas, have no access to safe, clean water.

What Are We Doing?

We work with local communities to provide safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene education. Money raised in the UK pays for work by local professional water engineers to fix broken wells and dig new wells.

Rainwater Harvesting

When building a new well, although we prefer to drill a borehole, this may not always be possible. There may be too many natural pollutants, for instance, or the area could be too remote for drilling rigs to access. Rainwater harvesting therefore provides a viable alternative to providing a clean water source. We have completed two Rainwater harvesting projects, both for schools in Kenya and Uganda. Read more
