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

Why Water

844 million people globally don’t have access to safe water. Drinking dirty water makes people ill. That’s just part of the picture... A lack of safe water and sanitation holds back development and makes it harder for communities to escape the poverty trap. Just £5 can transform a life with safe water today.

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. So far we have reached over 1.4 million people with safe water and sanitation.



Get Involved!

Take on a marathon, hold a bake sale, give a monthly donation - there are so many ways you can get involved and join us in bringing clean, safe water to all.

  • Story of a Sand Dam

    In the semi-arid area of Makueni County in Kenya, Just a Drop works with community self-help groups to build sand dams, which provide a natural and sustainable solution to capturing the biannual rains that fall so quickly and heavily that very little water is captured for drinking, washing, or other needs.
