How we're funded
Our funding currently comes from a mixture of restricted government grants and unrestricted funds. We seek and accept funding from organisations that share our objectives and that do not seek to compromise our core values.
Restricted funds from UK (Global Poverty Action Fund) and Scottish Governments (Climate Justice Fund) fund our Fair Water Futures Project in Tanzania and Zambia currently. In the last 2 years we have also received funding from GIZ to assist with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development's (BMZ) International Water Stewardship Programme (IWaSP). We also receive funds from businesses such as Olam International and Diageo to implement the AWS Standard at their local sites in Tanzania and Zambia.
Water Witness International is a registered charity with OSCR Scottish Charity Register (SC041072). Our financial reports are carried out each year by an independent financial examiner which are then reported to OSCR. A summary of this can be viewed on the Scottish Charity Register on their site here.
