About us

WaterAid focuses on clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene - the three essentials that unlock progress for people and communities worldwide.

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.

People are at the heart of everything we do. We aim to inspire people, bringing them together to ignite action. We spark chain reactions that lead to lasting change. Lasting change in people's habits and expectations. Lasting change in how countries work, not just in how villages and communities work. Lasting change in people's lives.

There is still a lot to do. But together we're making progress. We started because no charity like us existed. We'll end when no charity like us is needed. Together, we can change millions of lives for the better - and change normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
