WaterAid transforms lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s
poorest communities. We work with partners and influence decision-makers to maximise our impact.
WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to safe water and sanitation. Together with
improved hygiene, these basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods, forming the
first essential step in overcoming poverty.
We work with local partners, who understand local issues, and provide them with the skills and support
to help communities set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet their real needs.
We also work locally and internationally to change policy and practice and ensure that water, hygiene and sanitation’s vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.
WaterAid aims to be inclusive in all that we do. We work with economically poor and marginalised people who often miss out such as women and
girls, those living with HIV/AIDS, minority ethnic groups, older and disabled people and those who face discrimination. The needs and voices of
the communities we work with, our staff, volunteers, partners and stakeholders shape our policy and practice.
At WaterAid learning is central to our practice. We continually evolve to make sure that our work is sustainable, innovative, relevant and effective.
The water and sanitation crisis will only be solved by collaborative action. Our engagement with other organisations, communities, staff and
supporters underpins our success. We value their diversity. We believe that we should be accountable, responsive and transparent to those we
serve and those who support us.
