We are delighted to share our 2022/23 Annual Review.
This year we have delivered 3 programmes in India and 2 pilot programmes in Ghana and Kenya. This work included building 156 rainwater harvesting systems, building one sand dam in Kenya and helping to establish 22 micro water businesses in Ghana. We continue to work in remote communities, where climate change greatly affects the vulnerable communities who are still lacking access to a source of clean water close to their homes or schools.
In January, we reached our 36th year and we are immensely grateful to all those who support us. With your help, over the last 36 years, WaterHarvest has directly supported over two million people, worked in 2,048 villages, and built structures to harvest 1.41 billion litres of rainwater annually. Our income this year was £388,690, 4% above last year’s level.
As you will see in the ‘Future Plans’ section of the Annual Review, some of the pilots in Africa are expanding into larger programmes and we are also working with a new partner in Uganda building water harvesting tanks in schools.
We firmly believe that taking our time to find the right path forward is ensuring the greatest impact for our donors’ funds. We look forward to the year ahead and thank you for your continued support.
