About Just a Drop
Launched in 1993 Just A Drop is an international water development charity with a very simple plan: to give people clean, safe water and to reduce the number of children dying as a result of water related diseases. Working with local partners at a grass roots level they provide clean water and sanitation facilities to some of the poorest communities around the world. To date they have carried out projects across 31 countries, reaching an estimated 1.3 million people.
Barrhead Travel – Songeni Primary School Project
Our aim is to raise £9000 to provide a water tank to the 139 pupils of Songeni Primary School in Muthini Village, Kenya. Currently water is available to them only one day a week and not at all during the dry season. The money we raise will provide the school with a water tank to give them year round safe and clean water.
We ask our customers to consider donating 50p per passenger travelling to Just A Drop.
Barrhead Travel's Commitment
Sharon Munro, Chief Executive at Barrhead Travel, said: “We’re incredibly excited about our partnership with Just a Drop, supporting a cause we care deeply about. Across the world, 663 million people have no clean water readily available and around 2.5 billion people don’t have access to adequate sanitation. We believe more needs to be done to change these figures."
“We are committed to fundraising for the charity and increasing awareness of the life-changing work it carries out. Aside from encouraging customers to provide a donation when booking, we will also be hosting lots of staff and customer fundraising activities over the next 12 months.”
