Our First Ever Annual Report Has Landed!

We are pleased to announce that we can now release our first ever annual report.  This represents something of a milestone for Wherever the Need and reflects the development of our organisation as our work expands in India, Kenya and Sierra Leone. In our report you will find further explanations of why we put Sanitation First as well as updates on our work, including examples of some Ecosan projects in India, water projects in Kenya, and livelihood projects in Sierra Leone.  You will also find out how your support has helped us as well as break-downs of how we have distributed your money.

Winter newsletter 2011-2012

In our summer newsletter, we focused on the trip David (CEO) had just made to India. In this latest newsletter we explain a little more fully what we are doing in Africa based on Richard’s (Director of African Development) most recent visit. He managed to combine a trip to both Kenya and Sierra Leone and there are many contrasts between the two countries. Kenya is one of Africa’s powerhouses, while Sierra Leone is anything but. However, even in the relative prosperous Kenya the majority of people have an extremely difficult life, made all the more difficult by acute water shortages caused by increasing drought conditions. In contrast Sierra Leone, at least in the region in which we work, has abundant rainfall, but little or no infrastructure and a population that is among the poorest in the world. However, regardless of the country the basis of our work is the same – using sanitation, water and livelihoods to help people out of poverty. It is the good health and income generation model that we employ successfully in every project. Read the newsletter here (PDF 2.7mb)
