The Team

Meet the people behind your bottle.

Edwin - The Water Guy

I started GiveMeTap while I was studying for my PhD in Mathematics at the University of Manchester. Around that time, I also happened to be on a major fitness drive. Finding places to fill up my water bottle around campus was almost impossible so I decided to do something about it.

That thing was Give Me Tap.

After pitching the business at various events, I kept on being approached by people asking “Hey - are you that Water Guy?” The name stuck and it’s now my mission to spread the gift of clean water to everyone.

Sanum - The Chatterbox

After finishing University in 2013, I am now the first employee & co-founding member, heading up PR, Marketing & Sales. I like to think I'm saving the World, one press release at a time!

How did I get my name? Edwin realised after my first week at GiveMeTap that I cannot stop talking so it only seemed fit to call me the Chatterbox!

Waleed Lakhani - The Plumber

I too studied at the University of Manchester, so naturally it wasn't long before I heard about GiveMeTap and it's mission to bring clean water to the world. I initially got involved as an intern in 2013 and then joined as employee #2 as soon as I graduated.

As The Plumber, I'm responsible for Sales as well as maintaining and building our network of Taps. You'll usually find me either pitching / selling GiveMeTap or looking for new cafes and restaurants to add to our network.

GiveMeTap Droplets

We’re really lucky to have such bright people come and work with us every now and then, so we thought it only fair that their hard work be recognised here.
