About us » In the Community
We believe that it’s important for us to give back to the planet that gives us so much, and that’s why we like to give our support to charities working so hard to make a difference.
Even today, millions of men, women and children across our planet do not have access to safe drinking water. This lack of availability of our most vital resource is responsible for tens of millions of deaths every year.
Water for Kids is an amazing small team doing truly incredible work providing safe drinking water for communities across Africa. They build safe, reliable and trusted water sources for communities that are in desperate need.
Hear from the Water for Kids’ Chairman, Peter Minhinnet, about the amazing work they do in Africa and learn how Ecoegg have helped build and protect a water source in Uganda.
We are proud to have provided funding towards the building of a water source and supporting the vital work of Water for Kids. To find out more, we’d love it if you visited www.waterforkids.org for more information and more photos are below of the difference this amazing charity makes.
We have also teamed up with the charity RIPPLE Africa, who amongst other projects are working hard to conserve the forests in Malawi.
RIPPLE Africa is a UK registered charity focused on the environment, education and healthcare, in the Nkhata Bay District of Malawi, Africa. RIPPLE Africa is special because of their grass-roots approach to problem solving. They adopt practical and culturally-relevant solutions to environment and development problems.
Deforestation is one of the most devastating issues facing Malawi today. Over 90% of Malawi’s population are subsistence farmers, of which 99% rely on rain-fed agriculture with no formal irrigation system. For people so wholly dependent on the stability of their climate for food and income, it is terrifying that in Malawi today an area of forest the size of a football pitch is destroyed every 10 minutes.
Since 2010, RIPPLE Africa has run a forest conservation project which protects approximately 150,000 square kilometres of forest in the Nkhata Bay District. So far RIPPLE Africa and the local communities have planted over four million trees and developed 100 community tree nurseries!
