WaterAid is the UK’s only major charity dedicated exclusively to the provision of safe domestic water, sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people. These most basic services are essential to life: without them vulnerable communities are trapped in the stranglehold of disease and poverty.
WaterAid works in 15 of the world’s poorest countries and to date its projects have helped over eight million people gain access to safe water supplies. WaterAid works by helping local organisations set up low cost, sustainable projects using appropriate technology that can be managed by the community itself.
WaterAid also seeks to influence the policies of other key organisations such as governments, to secure and protect the right of poor people to safe affordable water and sanitation services.
