Right now, the world’s poorest people do not have access to clean water, sanitation or hygiene. This crisis is ruining lives and holding back development.

WaterAid's mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene.

Through our partners in Africa, Asia and the Pacific region, we reached 2 million people with clean water and 3 million people with sanitation last year.

Everything we do is shaped by our six values:

  • Respect 
  • Accountability 
  • Courage 
  • Collaboration 
  • Innovation 
  • Integrity

You can help us reach everyone everywhere by 2030 with clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
