Water is essential to a good education....so that's why we are helping to provide it.

We are delighted to be supporting a project that will provide clean, safe drinking water to hundreds of children across four schools in the slum region of Nairobi, Kenya.

In partnership with UK charity Porridge & Rice, Fonthill are funding the installation of water tanks at four of the 28 schools supported by the charity; and it was great to see work starting on the ground recently.

Safe clean water for drinking, cooking and washing is a fundamental basic need, and a lack of access to water affects children's ability to learn, time in the classroom, health and sanitation.

We look forward to seeing the water tanks up and running soon.
