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

WaterAid was started in 1981 because no non-profit like us existed. We remain determined to make clean water, reliable toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

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.
