UK-based nonprofit WaterMade is a social enterprise that raises money for water projects across East Africa by selling jewelry handmade from recycled materials by women’s groups in Kampala, Uganda. Founded by the Sheffield water charity The Long Well Walk, the student-run WaterMade nonprofit operates a number of different projects and helps provide a sustainable income to local communities. Funds from WaterMade sales also support the charity group ‘Kid’s Clubs Kampala,’ which creates education and community programs to help lift Ugandan children out of poverty.
