W4W description

Walking for Water (W4W) is a non profit NGO based in Denmark.

We are raising funds to drill boreholes and establish safely managed drinking water services in African communities, who are currently living with limited access to safe drinking water services (roundtrip 30 minutes to nearest clean source) or worse.

We cooperate with local NGO's in the WASH sector in our operating countries, to make use of their local knowledge for finding beneficiaries in worthy need, to obtain fair material and labour prices from contractors in the area, as well as training the beneficiaries in proper monitoring and maintenance of the projects.

Current and finished projects

Till now we have successfully established projects in Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana and Nigeria, but 785 million people, about 10% of the worlds population, are still lacking access to even a basic water service. Though our main focus is UN’s sustainable development goal number 6, Clean Water and Sanitation for all, availability of clean water and sanitation is a prerequisite for the achievement of several other global goals, including SDG 1; No poverty, SDG 3; Good health and well being, SDG 4; Quality education, among others. W4W have several projects across Westafrica yet to be funded, but with your help, we are able to join hands to get help out where it is needed the most.
