The World Water-Tech Innovation Summit, a leading networking conference for the international water community is celebrating a huge milestone having raised £20,000 for its UK charity partner Frank Water.

This collaboration marks a decade of dedicated support and generosity, bringing innovation and positive change to the water-tech industry and remote communities in need.

Each year, World Water-Tech has donated a percentage of its revenues to Frank Water, resulting in a donation of £20,000 to date.

Jennie Moss, Founder & Managing Director at Rethink Events (organisers for World Water-Tech) said: “This partnership is a source of immense pride for us. We’ve not only fostered innovation in the water sector but have also made a tangible impact on thousands of lives. These efforts epitomise our commitment to  driving change and creating a legacy of positive social impact.”

Through this collaboration, Frank Water has directed its efforts towards the upliftment of communities in the state of Chhattisgarh in India. Over the last decade, Frank Water’s work has improved the lives of over 17,000 tribal men and women, as well as their descendants, by enhancing health, hygiene, sanitation, access to clean water, and livelihood opportunities. This has not only transformed lives but has also paved the way for a brighter future for countless families. Read the full case study here.

Katie Alcott, Founder & CEO of Frank Water said: “We’re delighted to have been supported by Rethink Events for an incredible 10 years. We’re grateful for the opportunities this has provided Frank Water, which is enough to provide long-term access to safe, clean water for 1,667 people in the most remote communities.”


Since 2005, Frank Water has provided safe water, sanitation and hygiene training (WASH) to nearly 500,000 people across India and Nepal. In the UK, it encourages sustainable consumption of drinking water via its Refill schemes for events, restaurants and other public spaces. The World Water-Tech Innovation Summit partners with Frank Water to encourage water security and alleviate water poverty by improving the way that people across the world understand and use water.
