WaterAid

WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

Since 1981, we’ve remained resolutely focused on these essentials. Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good. Children grow up healthy and strong, women and men get to earn a living, whole communities start to thrive. It sounds normal and it should be.

By working with partners internationally and in some of the world’s toughest places, we help achieve widespread change. Millions of people have already taken control of their lives and built better futures. 

Now we are working with our supporters and partners to get clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to everyone, everywhere by 2030. It’s about more than installing taps, toilets and wells. To make lasting change happen on a massive scale, we:

  • convince governments to change laws;
  • change attitudes and behaviours;
  • pool knowledge and resources; and
  • rally support from people and organisations around the world.

Together, we will change millions of lives for the better – and change normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
