WaterAid has committed and dedicated fundraising committees in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia who generously volunteer their time, energy, expertise and skills organising regular events across Australia to raise considerable funds for WaterAid – and increase the profile of our work.

In 2013, the various volunteer committees raised in excess of $880,000 for WaterAid and 2014 is set to be even bigger. This money enables WaterAid to plan future programmes to help more remote communities gain access to water and sanitation in Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea, Cambodia and the Solomon Islands.

Committee events include:
Gala balls, golf days, trivia nights, lawn bowls, film nights and much more!
