Good, clean fun for everyone
Clean, safe drinking water and access to toilets are something that we can take for granted. Unfortunately for many communities around the world this isn't the case.
Poor sanitation has a massive impact on peoples' lives. Without clean water, soap and toilets there are many serious consequences including; disease, increased risk of sexual violence, reduced school attendance and lower academic achievement. Sadly it is often women and children who are affected the most.
We want to do our bit to help so this year we have chosen Pump Aid as our nominated charity.
Pump Aid have been delivering water and sanitation programmes in rural Malawi for over 20 years. To date they have helped nearly 1.5 million people access safe, clean water.
They have received numerous accolades but most notably they were awarded the International Aid and Development Award at the 2017 UK Charity Awards.
You can discover more about their unique approach to sustainable water initiatives, including a focus on entrepreneurship and reduction on aid dependency, at their website www.pumpaid.org
