WaterHarvest is a UK Water Charity
We work to provide clean, year round drinking water to remote, rural communities.
A little about us
WaterHarvest has over 36 years of history, originally starting in 1987 as ‘Wells for India’, when founders Dr. Nicholas Grey and his wife Mary visited the state of Rajasthan in north-west India and saw for themselves the hardship faced by people in remote, rural villages affected by drought.
We have a small team in the UK and in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India and an active board of trustees and ambassadors.
We are registered in England and Wales as company no. 6484901 and as charity no. 1127564.
Our fundraising promise
We work hard to make your donation have the greatest impact possible. We keep all our costs low, including our fundraising costs. We look for a community contribution and also leverage funds from local and national levels of government and corporates where possible.
Value for money
Value for money is embedded in everything we do. It’s been in our roots since we were founded back in 1987. We are mindful of how hard people work for their money and focus on maximising the impact of your donations.
How we work
We believe that national actors are vital for change in a country. We work with local partners to develop the best solutions for their communities. We do not seek to impose, rather to offer our help and guidance.

Help rural communities source clean water
Over 2 billion people around the world do not have access to safely managed drinking water services. Around 80% of these people live in rural communities. We work with local communities to provide clean drinking water to last mile communities.
£4 provides a family in rural India with clean water at home for a month.
£70 pays for a class of 30 children in Uganda to have water at school for over 10 years.
£1,150 sets up a sustainable clean drinking water business in Ghana.
