FUNDRAISE AT WORK
Help increase equality for women and girls by twinning a tap for International Women’s Day on the 8th March or World Water Day on March 22nd.
Here’s why twinning taps matters…
Lack of access to drinking water, means missing out on school for Bridget…
Bridget lives in south-west Uganda. She has four sisters. Her father is a banana farmer and Bridget often helps him in the plantation.
Every day Bridget walks to a spring to fetch water. The water is contaminated by animal and human waste from household toilets that have been built in the wrong place.
During assembly at Bridget’s school, children are chosen to go and fetch water from a spring quite far away. Often, by the time they get back to school classes have already started. Children are getting left behind in their education every day.
Thankfully, due to people twinning their taps a tap-stand has now been installed at Bridget’s school so that pupils now have clean water on site and don’t have to miss their lessons anymore!
Twin a Tap today
For every £60 your group donates, you can twin one of your taps with a tap-stand in Zambia, Uganda, Nepal, Malawi, Kenya, Guatemala, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Brazil or Afghanistan.
We’ve created some resources for you to use to raise awareness and fundraise for the vital resource of clean and safe water!
