WaterAid is run by a small team of UK Trustees, staff and volunteers based in London, Bristol and at the University of Kent. The organisation was established in 2015 through the joining of two UK charities, Seeds for Africa and the Kenyan Orphan Project. has a mission to give every child an equal opportunity by removing the overwhelming obstacles that stand in their way. Their work is primarily in Africa, and includes a “Feeding our Future” programme of food gardens and breakfast clubs in Uganda, Ghana and Sierra Leone and an innovative new HealthStart network of schools in Kenya. All their schools provide data that shows the impact a daily breakfast can have on improved attendance, concentration and academic attainment. Their programmes all aim to have a sustainable impact on the communities they work with.

In 2013 Seeds for Africa had an annual income of £80,000, and TWF awarded a grant of £9,700 to implement their Feeding our Future project and to install water tanks in St. John Kaama Primary School in Uganda. This grant will provide a safe water source and establish a sustainable feeding programme for the 250 pupils, reducing water-related illness and leading to improved attendance and academic performance.
