The Brampton College Charitable Trust has supported the charity, Water Aid, for many years now. When they recently talked to our students over Zoom about some of their projects, one of our students was spurred into action to help. Here, Chloe explains why she’s doing her bit to support the charity and how you can donate money to the cause. All money raised by Chloe will be match funded by Brampton College.
On 6th June 2021, I will be running a half marathon to raise money for Water Aid.
Although being able to have clean water, reliable toilets and good hygiene seems like a normal part of daily life for everyone, billions of people do not have access to these basic needs. 1 in 10 people are unable to access clean water close to home and 1 in 4 people don’t have a decent toilet of their own. Individuals are forced to drink, bathe, cook and clean with dirty water, risking their health every day in order to survive. In addition to this lack of hygiene, many children have to walk over 5 miles every morning just to collect water for the day, this is time that could otherwise be used for learning.
Water Aid has teams in 28 countries across the world working to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene. They directly install taps, toilets and wells in areas of need along with proving funds for education and convincing governments to change laws.
