It takes a team
The Wimbledon Foundation and WaterAid have teamed up to champion clean water, for futures full of potential. We want to make clean water normal for everyone, everywhere. Getting sustainable clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to a community takes more than simply installing taps and pipes. It takes teams of people, too: government officials, water committees, mechanics, plumbers, community members, teachers and more.
The village of Birtadeurali in Nepal is no different. When their water supply was destroyed by the earthquake in 2015, the whole community came together, with help from WaterAid and local partners, to build a new one.

The Wimbledon Foundation
Established in 2013, the Wimbledon Foundation is the official charity of The All England Lawn Tennis Club and The Championships. The Foundation aims to use the resources and heritage of Wimbledon to help improve people’s lives, both in the local area and on an increasingly global scale.
The Wimbledon Foundation will donate £100,000 annually for three years to help WaterAid make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for communities in three countries, Ethiopia, Malawi and Nepal, supporting WaterAid’s work in health centres, schools and communities.
