Water for Kids 2016 - Celebrating 20 Years

Water for kids celebrating 20 yearsWater for Kids became a registered charity in 1996. 20 years on we are raising over £60,000 per year and spending the same amount on projects delivering safe water to communities mainly in Uganda and Zambia. We are so proud of what we have achieved and the lives we have changed during these 20 years and we gratefully acknowledge that this has been made possible thanks to our supporters.

To mark the occasion we are organising a special 20 Year AGM on the 2nd July to be held at Rutland Water, Rutland, which will include a fundraising cycle challenge around the Water, open to anyone who wants to join us. Find out more about the AGM event.

And we hope there will be more. Please help us to celebrate 20 wonderful years of Water for Kids during the coming 12 months by organising your own fundraising event. Also, if you have any memories you wish to share of Water for Kids please email us.

Please help us continue delivering our essential and life saving work.
Peter Minhinnett, Chairman

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.

Partnerships

We work closely with our partners overseas and with the local people to ensure our projects are sustainable.
