Welcome to FRANK Water. The small safe water charity with a big impact
In 2005, Katie Alcott founded FRANK Water. On a shoestring budget, she bought a few cases of bottled water, sold them to local cafes and restaurants and donated the profits to an NGO in India.
Today, FRANK Water is a small, successful safe water charity with a big impact.
FRANK Water works with partners to increase access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene, helping close the loop that is critical to health and wellbeing.
FRANK Water devotes its energy to reaching marginalised communities where our work can have maximum impact.
FRANK Water began work with rural Chhattisgarh in April 2014. The 2yr project will improve access to WASH for 36 tribal communities. So far, NGO Samerth has focused on training their team & engaging the community. Mobilising communities is often difficult, especially in remote areas, but community empowerment has already grown. Ponds have been renovated & handpumps installed. Communities have begun to claim their rights, including ration cards, pensions and improvements to infrastructure.
