Volunteers are needed to assist the project by :
• Digging a hole.
• Partly backfill with compost.

We work with local partners who understand local issues and we provide them with skills and support.

We also campaign locally and internationally, to change policies and practice, and to ensure water and sanitation's vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.
