Dig Deep - Volunteer Team Leader

Details of the Charity:

We're unlocking opportunity for Kenya's poorest residents, county by county, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets and hygiene - forever. Where we work in Kenya, 8 out of every 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene. Most residents live in rural communities and spend hours every  day walking to  collect  dirty water or find a safe place to relieve themselves. Dirty water and poor hygiene spread diseases meaning even more time is lost to sickness that could have been used to learn and earn. For a child, this can mean the difference between dropping out of primary  school and completing a full education. For a parent this can mean the difference between struggling to get by and earning enough to improve the standing of their family. Our supporters are the only ones helping these communities to remove these  barriers. We know that every £1 you  invest in clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene, unlocks up to £8 in economic returns.
