Welcome to Village Water

Changing lives in Africa through safe water and sanitation

Safe water, sanitation and hygiene change lives. They fight preventable diseases helping communities to be healthier, help families break away from poverty and help children go to school.

Our work supports communities in Zambia and is all about helping communities to help themselves. We support training so that people have the skills and tools needed to look after their new water point, practise good hygiene and working in partnership.
