Supporting the charity FRANK water - bringing clean water to communities.
We work with artisans around the world, but a large majority of our collections are handmade in India. Frequent visits have exposed us to not only the wonder and vitality of this beautiful country but also the hardships and poverty. The charity FRANK Water caught our attention because its focus is to help improve the living standards of poorer communities by going into areas, often too remote for larger charities and establishing clean water systems.
This grass roots charity faces a number of challenges in not only installing bore holes, reconditioning wells and finding alternative safe water solutions but also in educating members of the community on how to make use of these systems and maintain clean water.
FRANK Water has made a huge difference to these communities helping fight water born disease, removing the need for women and daughters to walk long distances to collect water, allowing them to focus their time on other areas of home life and importantly giving more time for young girls to attend school and providing people with the basic human right of clean water.
To support this charity we devised the plan to build a campaign around the busiest shopping week of the year. By shopping with us this week you are supporting FRANK Water and improving the lives of families in India.
As an additional benefit our campaign ties in with the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge which means that the amount we raise will be doubled. You can find out more information on FRANK Water here.
