At Dig Deep we’re unlocking opportunity for Kenya’s poorest residents, county by county, by ensuring everyone has clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene - forever.
Where we work in Kenya, 8 out of every 10 people lack access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene.

For a child, this can mean the difference between dropping out of primary school and completing a full education. For a parent, this can mean the difference between struggling to get by and earning enough to improve the standing of their family.
Our supporters are the only ones helping these communities to remove these barriers. We know that every £1 you invest in clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene, unlocks up to £8 in economic returns.
