In 2014 NCA received the funds from the NRK Telethon. Together with NRK, NCA broke the record and received the highest amount ever collected in the Telethon's history. The humbling amount of NOK 250 million made it possible for NCA to expand the planned intervention to more countries and more communities. This was made possible with the extraordinary efforts of our colleagues at the implementing country offices.

With TCP funds In Tanzania, NCA released 154 waterpoints and more than 122 000 people has gained access to safe water between 2015-2019. Through the TCP in Tanzania, NCA has constructed new water points at six schools and, over the lifetime of the TCP, has upgraded them to be fitted with solar-powered electric pumps. This development has allowed the schools to pump more water from the aquifer, to store it in an elevated tank and then distribute it across the school grounds, to the kitchens, dormitories, toilets, showers and taps in the yard of the school – significantly reducing distance and queuing time for students and cooking staff in the schools.
In addition to access to water, NCA facilitated School Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (SWASH) Clubs where student practiced hygiene tips while in schools. The benefit of sharing information with students is that many of them transfer the knowledge to their family and to the community at large.
