FRANK Water is a Bristol based charity that supports life changing water and sanitation projects in both India and Nepal.
In India, 163 million people live without safe water and in Nepal 2.3 million. A further 210 million live without access to improved sanitation in India.
This has devastating consequences, especially for young children, women and girls.
We work together with carefully selected local partners to reach the most marginalised people living in rural, tribal and mountainous areas. Working with the community every step of the way, we help them to develop holistic, inclusive and sustainable solutions. Since, 2005, we have reached over 403,000 people in 520 communities.
If people have access to a safe water supply and toilet their lives can be transformed:
Better health: 140,000 children die every year in India from waterborne diseases and in Nepal the figure is 7,900. These deaths could easily be prevented through improved access to water and sanitation.
Improved education: When children fall sick, they miss school and fall behind. 443 million school days are lost each year in India from water-related diseases.
Resilient communities: By tackling water and sanitation, communities are motivated to overcome other problems together.
