The fact that 1 in 10 people in the world today don’t have clean water is an outrage, and we need you to help change that. We’re the #1 international nonprofit exclusively focused on clean water, hygiene and sanitation, and there are 650 million reasons we do what we do. That daunting figure is the number of men, women and children who have yet to see, taste and enjoy safe clean water.
Currently, more than 650 million people live without safe water and 2.3 billion lack access to basic sanitation. The consequences are shocking: 1,400 children die every day of a water-related disease.
WaterAid brings 30+ years of expertise to communities that need the 'know-how' and simple, low-cost equipment to set-up, operate and maintain their water and sanitation systems for the long-term. Our projects aim to significantly improve the health of communities and contribute to far-reaching impacts, such as reducing poverty, increasing access to education, and improving the status of women and children. WaterAid works in 37 countries and campaign globally with our partners to drive change and realize our vision of a world where everyone has access to these basic human needs. Help us reach everyone, everywhere with safe water, sanitation and hygiene by 2030.
