Water for Africa is wonderful, they provide thousands of people with clean drinking water. They are the reason we get up in the morning and hopefully one of the reasons why you drink it. They aren't like normal charities, they believe that a sustained programme of investment, education and training will enable communities in Africa to lift themselves out of poverty. Where is the best place to start? With Water of course.

Started in 2002, Water for Africa has spent the last 14 years drilling bore-holes, building infrastructure and training local communities how to look after their wells. Their in-country teams are local men who have taken it upon themselves to help lift their nation out of poverty. It is a system that is truly unique to WFA (that's what their friends call them).
