Navjot Sawhney is crowdfunding

raised of £5,000 target by 92 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to help build and transport 50 portable, water-saving, manual washing machines

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


At the Washing Machine Project, we are helping to alleviate the burden of hand washing clothes for everyone, everywhere.

It's our one year anniversary, and we've got a lot of achievements under our belt - we've published research, partnered with Oxfam, and tested our prototype with internally displaced people in Iraq, but there's a lot more to do.

This year we are aiming to conduct a pilot of 50 Divyas (our washing machine, named after Nav's friend who inspired the project) in Northern Iraq. Your donation could go towards developing, testing or transporting the machines in preparation for the pilot programme.

We are also excited to announce that we will be sending Washing Machine Project T-shirts to anyone who donates over £50 to our JustGiving page. Send us an email at with proof of purchase, and we will get your t-shirt to you asap.
