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.
What we do
We work with communities to build clean water solutions suitable for their needs. Then we give them the skills to maintain them into the future.
We train community members to build toilets and create an income. We also send supplies and volunteers that build hundreds of loos a year.
We promote great hygiene habits through community campaigns, teaching everything from handwashing and managing periods to making soap.
What people are saying
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!!
The bog-builder was much appreciated as a better alternative to the usual Christmas presents by it’s recipients.
How we spend your money
Each gift in Shop for Life represents a simple, long-lasting solution WaterAid uses in their work. We’ve selected a great range of examples to show how any donation, big or small, can make a world of difference.
The cost of any gift you buy will go to WaterAid, helping them make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere.
