Elman Wall is delighted to be partnering with Just A Drop to support this wonderful charity’s work in Kenya starting in Summer 2019.
As a team, EW will be aiming to raise money in order for St Francis Senda School in Kenya (Makueni County) to benefit from water tanks. There are currently 413 children attending this school and due to a lack of regular supply of water, the school is required to buy water from third party vendors and often times, even this water is dirty. Unfortunately, this leads to frequent illness and children missing out on their education.
With a water tank and hand washing stations:
- children will have enough water to drink and cook with
- there will be less absences due to illness
- the school will be able to develop using the money previously spent on water for new classrooms, a laboratory of for growing food
- there will be extra water to address hygiene issues at the school, leading to improved health
Just A Drop brings sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities around the world, completely transforming lives, especially those of women and children.
Fiona Jeffery OBE, the Founder and Chair of Just A Drop said: “Safe water changes everything, transforming lives, especially those of women and children. We can’t achieve this without the support of partners like Elman Wall and I’m so pleased they have adopted Just a Drop as a Charity Partner for 2019, it means everything to us”.
Elman Wall’s MD, Jonathan Wall, added: ‘“Not only will the Elman Wall team be supporting and engaging in the project directly, but by making Just a Drop our charity partner at our 2019 Travel Directors Summit, we will be giving them a platform to spread their message to 200 travel business owners and directors.”
