There are 663 million people in the world without access to safe drinking water. More than 1 in 10 of these people (77 million) live in India.
FRANK Water funds safe Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) programmes for communities that are most in need.
Set up in 2005 by Katie Alcott (who continues to run FRANK Water as CEO), FRANK Water has reached more than 325,000 people in 300 different villages and communities with safe water and sanitation.
We work across India, from Agra in the North to Telangana in the South West (and in several states in between). Our projects are diverse and solutions depend on multiple factors including how the water is contaminated, where the source is, what the terrain is like etc. For some villages, we implement gravity fed systems where water runs down from a source at the top of the hill into a village where it’s stored and used. For others, we install rainwater harvesting units that capture and filter rainfall for household use.
However, all projects have a common purpose – to provide access to safe, clean drinking water and sanitation (toilets) to groups of people who need it.
