Working to Bring Clean Water to Coffee-Growing Communities

Today, 785 million people around the world don’t have access to clean water and the majority live in isolated, rural areas... the very same areas in which our coffee is grown.

While we enjoy the purest filtered water in our rich, habitual morning treat, the communities at the end of its supply chain face a water crisis.

This is why we support UK Coffee Week, a nationwide campaign which raises money for Project Waterfall – a charity working to end the water crisis in our lifetime.

What’s UK Coffee Week?

For one spectacular week every year... the coffee-loving community comes together to raise money for Project Waterfall by donating money from every coffee sold, running raffles and holding fun events.

Now in its tenth year – and taking place between 27 April & 3 May 2020 – 1000's of coffee shops, chains, brands and businesses register to take part, all so coffee-lovers (across the UK) can raise money at work or during their daily commute... and all because they bought a specific cuppa' from a supporting vendor.

Since 2011, UK Coffee Week has raised over £750,000 for Project Waterfall, helped fund 6 new initiatives in countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, and changed 28,000 lives.

What does Project Waterfall do?

Project Waterfall brings clean water, sanitation and education to coffee-growing communities across the world.

Regardless of where (or how big) a community is, Project Waterfall’s aim is to implement tangible and sustainable solutions that create access to water and improve the quality of it.

100% of the funds raised during this year’s UK Coffee Week will go to Project Waterfall’s ongoing work in the rural Jabi Tehnan district of Ethiopia.
