Clean drinking water is a basic human right which every person in the world should have access to.
Project Waterfall is an initiative developed by the Allegra Foundation (registered charity: 1133540) to bring clean water to the communities which grow our coffee.
Since 2011, Project Waterfall has raised over £600,000 and delivered clean drinking water to over 24,000 people in Tanzania, Rwanda and Ethiopia.
Donations from UK Coffee Week 2016 have been used to fund two projects in coffee communities of the Oromia and Tokay Kutaye regions of Ethiopia in partnership with Water Aid. Enough money was raised this year to also fund water projects in two orphanages in Addis Ababa, in partnership with Splash.
