FAQs

What is Sing for Water?

Sing for Water events are community-based concerts, more commonly known as big sings. The first event took place in 2002 and was co-founded by composer Helen Chadwick and the Thames Festival Trust in London. The idea of the event is that singers and choirs learn music and songs separately and then come together for one big performance. Each singer commits to raising a certain amount of money as part of the event, and all the funds go towards our vital projects in Ethiopia, reaching some of the world’s poorest communities with safe water, taps and toilets. To date, Sing for Water events have raised over £1 million for WaterAid's work.

How can I get involved?
