WaterAid Australia is a member of WaterAid, an international non governmental organisation. Our mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

Vision

WaterAid's vision is a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

Mission

Our mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

What We Do

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 water, hygiene and sanitation’s vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.
