Our Thirst For Knowledge appeal is now closed
Thanks to your support - which was matched up to £2million by the UK government - we can bring clean water and decent toilets to tens of thousands of girls in Nepal, so they can focus on their learning and their futures. We'll share updates on the progress we're making soon. If you would like to support our other projects around the world, you can give a lifechanging gift here.
Make a change with water
When you buy your gifts from Shop for Life, you are giving so much more than a card. As well as a unique gift for your loved ones, a card from Shop for Life doubles as a gift for someone in need.
Clean water? We’ll drink to that
Having a tap with clean water shouldn’t be a dream. We’ve been making it a reality for millions of people. You can help us today simply by sending a gift to a loved one. Cheers!
Decent toilets transform communities
Living without a loo would hold anyone back, so we get decent toilets to people who need them. By building bogs around the world, together we can give the gift of privacy, safety and a healthier future.
Good hygiene is more important than ever
In 2020, personal hygiene became one of everyone’s top priorities. However, there are communities without even the basic necessities, that need your help to avoid infection, and stay in school and work.
How it works
A bit about Shop for Life
Every time you shop with us, your donation helps WaterAid reach people with life-saving clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
With Shop for Life you don’t just give any old gift – you’re helping to make a change with water.
Our happy customers
I bought these as a gift for my dad on Fathers’ Day . He was really pleased with it and we’re both so happy that now a few more water pumps can be maintained. Am saving up to buy a water pump now!!
A fabulous idea as an alternative baby gift, my friends were delighted with it, especially baby Frankie, he knows how lucky he is!
The gift that keeps on giving. A brilliant gift to give a Valentine and provide water where it’s needed most.
