“Water stress and lack of access to water has disproportionate impact on women and girls as they spend a lot of hours collecting water every day. Girls of school age are at a disadvantage compared to their male counterparts. The health burden of poor water was enormous in our village. Thanks to Stoke City Football Club and drop4drop for helping us to improve our health and ensure our children, both boys and girls, can get a good education.”

This project was undertaken as part of our campaign of projects that actively reduce carbon emissions. This project helped the community save their much needed wood which was previously being burnt daily to boil water. This project has also eliminated the many thousands of hours previously spent on walking to collect water.
