Our Mission / Objective

WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

Since we started, we’ve remained resolutely focused on tackling these three essentials that transform people’s lives. 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. Children grow up healthy and strong, women and men get to earn a living, whole communities start to thrive. It sounds normal and it should be.

By inspiring people and sparking chain reactions we help deliver lasting change in what’s normal. By working closely with partners internationally and on the ground in some of the toughest places in the world, we help achieve widespread change. Millions of people have already taken control of their lives and built better futures.

Now we are working with our supporters and partners to get clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to everyone, everywhere by 2030. It’s about more than installing taps, toilets, boreholes and wells. To make lasting change happen on a massive scale, we:

  • convince governments to change laws;
  • link policy makers with people on the ground;
  • change attitudes and behaviours;
  • pool knowledge and resources; and
  • rally support from people and organisations around the world.

 

Together, we will change millions of lives for the better – and change normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

Our Services

We implement programs in communities in Cambodia, India, Myanmar, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste, as well as work with the local and national governments of these countries to design and implement plans and policies that prioritize water, sanitation and hygiene for their population. 

Our Beneficiaries

Water, sanitation and hygiene are fundamental human rights for every person around the world. However, we mainly focus on marginalized groups as well as those who usually carry the burden to ensure families and communities live in health environments: women, children, people with disability.   

Projects in Progress

WaterAid enables the world’s poorest people to gain access to clean water, decent toilets and good 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 clean water, hygiene and sanitation’s vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.

WaterAid is made up of member countries in Australia, Canada, India, Japan, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States. The member countries help to coordinate and fund operations across country programs in Africa, Asia, Central America and the Pacific. WaterAid Australia coordinates and funds programs in Cambodia, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste as well as supports programs in India and Myanmar.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Leave something vital: a better world for the world’s poorest people. Supporting WaterAid through a major gift or leaving a gift in your will can make a huge difference to the lives of many. You can provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to the world’s poorest people. https://www.wateraid.org/au/get-involved/ways-to-give/bequestsgifts-in-will

General Donations

When a community gets clean water for the first time, it’s the start of something truly life-changing. Right now, some of the world’s poorest and most marginalised people don’t have clean water to drink, decent toilets or hygiene. Without these basics, overcoming poverty is just a dream. But when people help us to dig a well or install a tap stand in a community, everything changes. https://www.wateraid.org/au/donate/donate-today
