Your Impact

At Dig Deep, we believe that everyone has the fundamental right to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.

Your fundraising challenge will help make this a reality.

Clean Water

Clean water is essential for drinking, cooking and cleaning to prevent the spread of deadly diseases.


At any given time, half of the world’s hospital beds are occupied by patients suffering from a water-related disease, such as typhoid and cholera.


Where we work, 2 out of 3 people don’t have access to clean water, putting them at greater risk of these diseases.

Safe toilet icon

Safe Toilets

Without access to a safe toilet, people may be forced to go outside, which can spread diseases into nearby water sources. 


Without toilets capable of safely managing their periods, women and girls often miss work and school, meaning they are disproportionately affected.


Where we work over half of households don’t have a safe toilet.

Good hygiene icon

Good Hygiene

The time lost to sickness means that every year 443 million school days are missed and £200 billion is wiped from the global economy.


Having the knowledge and resources (such as clean water and soap) to maintain good hygiene are important for reducing the risk of illness and infection.


Where we work, most children don’t have access to basic hygiene education.

We know it’s local people that will overcome the water and sanitation crisis, and it's our job to help them dramatically speed this up.

So far we have supported civil servants, business people and community leaders to:



water harvesting projects in schools and villages,

currently supplying over


people with clean water.

“As a school we are grateful for the construction of modern toilets and provisions of water. Since then our school has improved in terms of hygiene, academics and continuous surplus of water”
