Just a Drop is an international water developemnt charity working to bring sustainable safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects to communities, transforming lives.

Clean safe water changes everything. It improves health, education, womens' rights, leads to secure food sources, income generation and brighter futures. It completely transforms lives, especially those of women and children.

We work hand-in-hand with communities to implement the best solutions for their needs, such as rainwater harvesting systems, hand-dug and drilled wells, sand dams, water distribution systems, biosand filters, latrines, and sanitation and hygiene training. Our work is developing to encompass food security and micro-finance programmes, which further support communities to lift themselves out of the poverty trap and build brighter futures.

We have reached over 1.3 million people in 32 countries since we began in 1998.

  • Kenya
  • Uganda
  • Zambia

Just a Drop Changemakers: Fiona Jeffery OBE, Founder of Just a Drop & Paras Loomba of Global Himalayan Expedition

In celebration of Just a Drop’s 20th anniversary, we spoke to four inspirational people who are doing their bit to change the world we live in for the better. Fiona Jeffery OBE founded Just a Drop in 1998 shortly after becoming a mum. She learnt that at the time, a child died every 17 seconds because of dirty water - yet just £1 could provide a child with safe water for 10 years. At the time, Fiona was Chairman of the travel industry's global event World Travel Market, and by setting up Just a Drop hoped to encourage travel and tourism businesses to give back to the communities they operated in across the world.

Take on Just A Drop’s Summer Six Steps Challenge!

Women and children in Africa and Asia spend an estimated 200 million hours each day collecting water. They often walk an average of 6km, in the searing heat, hauling heavy water which can weigh up to 25kg. The water they are rewarded with may be filthy and cause life threatening illnesses. Water is often carried on the heads of women and children and naturally, with such a scarce resource, it is vital not to spill a drop. This summer, as part of its Mums Army campaign, Just a Drop is lau…

Make a Mother’s Day

Having recently been spoilt by my husband and two children this Mother’s Day (15th March), it can be easy to forget that thousands of mothers in Africa and Asia don’t have time for a special day. Instead, they are carrying out the back-breaking and all-consuming task of finding and fetching water for their families. Every day, they spend hours trying to provide this basic life necessity. Many women in sub-Saharan Africa are still expected to walk miles to collect water on the day t…

Just a Drop in Uganda

I can’t imagine not being able to turn on a tap, flush a lavatory or sip a glass of chilled water on a summer’s day. Yet, for millions of people throughout Africa, these simple acts are considered a luxury. In fact, accessing water to drink, bathe in or cook is a daily challenge; one which is typically undertaken by young children. Even harder to imagine is the thought that the children collecting this water have to walk several miles twice a day to reach a water source - often a …
