Just a Drop brings sustainable clean water,
sanitation and hygiene projects to communities,
transforming lives.

Why Water

663 million people globally don’t have access to clean water. Drinking dirty water makes people ill. That’s just part of the picture... A lack of clean water and sanitation holds back development and makes it harder for communities to escape the poverty trap.

Our Projects

Are community-owned, sustainable, and monitored for years after completion. This ensures they make a real, transformative impact to the lives of communities for decades to come.

Get Involved!
