Getting involved is easier than you think.

Up to 60% of water sources across Africa are currently failing.

Over the last 12 years we have played a pivotal role in the development of sustainable water projects in over 120 villages in Africa. Your efforts will ensure that our work continues throughout the region.



Once you have set up your campaign, reach out to your network and spread the word. The more people you get involved, the quicker you will hit your target and the faster you will be able to get a project going.

Keep track of your funds & monitor the impact of your investment. 

After successfully campaigning, your donations are sent directly to the field. This way you can keep track of all progress throughout the project life-cycle.


Be creative and inspire others to play their part.

We love creative people. Here are just few campaigns that we will never forget.


Show the world what you can do for clean water

How many boreholes can you help with?

Clean water changes everything.

Not only does water play a fundamental role in the day-to-day survival of every human being, but also in the development of future generations.

Where does your money go?

We have been on a mission to change water for an entire generation. With your support we have funded water projects in over 120 communities so far. 


Projects Receive 100%

Every penny goes directly to building clean water projects. Due to our private donors and established infrastructure we take great pride in minimising operational costs, so 100% of your money can go to the field.


Continuous Investment.

We continue to invest in our team to drill boreholes and build capacity throughout every region. By investing and training our local teams to maintain and repair each system we are able to maintain our projects for future generations.
