Peace flows through clean water...

Back by popular demand is our Spend A Penny Campaign to bring clean water to the people of Burundi and help prevent water borne diseases. All we ask is that you put some money in a pot/ box or jar everytime you use water.
  • £8 could provide one person with clean drinking water
  • £40 could provide a whole family with clean drinking water
  • £500 provides a fresh water spring for up to 100 people and trains local people to maintain it

Where Spend a Penny donations went in 2014

The second photo shows a new hand washing technique known as 'Honyorukarabe' (stand on a wash) from our water and sanitation projects in Burundi. It works when one person steps on a rope and then the water flows so they can wash themself. 169 households already have the device and is stopping the spread of disease.
