We are responding to the water crisis that East Africa is currently experiencing, it is the worst drought to hit the region in 60 years. The UN has officially declared famine in parts of Sub – Saharan Africa– regions. There are a number of reasons why poverty has become an epidemic in Africa. Poverty can be the result of political instability, ethnic conflicts, climate change and other man-made causes. But one of the greatest causes causes of poverty in Africa is the most overlooked..the lack of access to clean drinking water.

Nearly one billion people do not have access to clean water – that’s the equivalent of 1 in 8 people on the planet! Would you consider donating to our water program and our mission to provide clean drinking water for hygiene as well as water for irrigation. This will enable the school to grow their own food and provide two meals a day for each of the children. This will be achieved through the provision of a Well/Borehole with solar pump. It will allow the school to have fresh water for the School run garden thus benefiting the school, the children and the community as a whole. Please show your support and choose from one of the gifts from the table below. Then decide on how you want to donate, either a one off payment by Pay Pal or more gradual payment by Direct Debit.
