We are an Development NGO and nonprofit that works on realizing humanitarian projects. Our focus is on the development of water, health, education and security resources, based in the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

At Water for Development, we have worked for 15 years in Ethiopia to guarantee sustainable access to water and health resources. 

According to the World Health Organization, 844 million people lack basic access to potable water. In Ethiopia, only 5.6% of the rural population has access to potable water at home. The majority of the population must dedicate at least an hour each day to access water. Furthermore, women and girls are responsible for collecting water approximately 80% of the time. This is one of the reasons that many girls are unable to get to school; they must instead travel long distances to collect water several times a day. 

The construction of wells in rural areas is a good way to facilitate the distribution of water to families, however when facilitated by local authorities, it can be a long and costly project.


A well is more than a source of water, it is an important tool for the development of excluded communities, ensuring their right to sufficient water that is clean, acceptable, and physically accesible for domestic use. A well can benefit up to five thousand people, can make a difference for both a family and a community, and can change the lives of many children. If you ask us if a well can make a difference, our resounding answer is YES. The availability of water can change someone’s life, and in the case of young girls, can create the opportunity to go to school and change their entire future


For a better world 

At W4D we wish to communicate and educate the world about the reality of forgotten regions in Ethiopia. We believe it is important that more developed countries such as Spain and the US understand the problems in rural areas caused by a lack of water, and the consequences these accessibility issues have on the future of rural citizens, particularly children. Our project has emerged from the necessity of shedding light on this situation, and telling the stories that need to be told. 

Kokebe is an adventure that, through an interactive game, encourages empathy and provides information about the challenges our protagonist, Kokebe, must face to get water and go to school. Kokebe represents an Ethiopian girl, and her missions are all the difficulties that through W4D, we hope can be better understood by Spanish and American societies.
