About Wherever The Need Wherever the Need (www.wherevertheneed.org) is a UK registered charity (No. 1070826) that aims to implement projects that will directly benefit individuals over the long-term in the most efficient way possible. This enables sponsors of the charity to respond specifically to the needs of local people thus enabling, where wished, a connection to be established between those making the donation and those benefiting from it.
In its simplest form, WTN provides sanitation and clean drinking water, as itsâ experience has shown that no individual can begin to fend for him or herself if they are in a perpetual cycle of illness. With this basic foundation in place WTN then assists communities with locally sustainable livelihoods and it enables them to work their own way out of the poverty trap in which they have been locked for generations. All projects are approached in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible to further the Trusteeâs aim to safeguard the planet.
An integral part of this holistic approach is the development and provision of eco-sanitation toilets. WTN is now committed to promoting the use of eco-san, which not only provides safe sanitation, but also helps to protect the water supply from becoming contaminated. The fertiliser produced can be put back onto the land, to enhance the quality and nutrition of crops and vegetables grown within the local community This work will include education on how vital the earthâs infrastructure is at all levels of life, and how these environmental values can be truly empowering, and become part of day-to-day living.
