Working at
Walking for Water

W4W is a danish NGO working for Clean Water and Sanitation for all. Our main area of operation is Africa. So far we've raised funds for about 50 water pumps for poor communities across five African countries. Communities in need apply on our website for clean water assistance. We review the requests and our local partners visit promising communities to evaluate needs and provide borehole installation quotes. We then fundraise, mainly from Danish companies and donors, to sponsor water projects matched to communities. Our partners handle borehole establishment and provide project updates and photos to sustain engaged support. This model allows donors to directly aid worthy recipients in achieving life-changing clean water access. Our organisation is completely run by volunteers: - The Board of Directors (Elected annually by members. Take major decisions and give directions) - The Project Group (Validating applications, communicating with local partners, bargaining with contractors and sending funds) - The Web Group (Updating the website) - The SoMe group (Handing content creation and posting of annonces and organic posts on the organisations SoMe handles) - The Members Group (Responsible for recruiting and keeping passive members and volunteers) *Group currently empty* - The Sponsor Group (Responsible for finding sponsors for our projects) *Group currently empty* We need assistance to innovate and run vital parts of our operations.
