We believe that campaigning has a vital part to play in helping to solve the water and sanitation crisis. We combine as many voices as possible to influence decision-makers.

More on our campaigns


Through our Water Works campaign, WaterAid Nigeria has been working to influence national political commitment to improved water, sanitation and hygiene practices. The campaign, which has sought to raise awareness and encourage our leaders to act, also set out to influence Nigeria's active participation at the Sanitation and Water for All High Level Meeting in Washington D.C. 

WaterAid Nigeria played a key role in advising the Nigerian Government ahead of their involvement at the High Level Meeting in Washington where significant commitments were made in prioritising water, sanitation and hygiene services for the Nigerian population.

As part of our activities to commemorate 2011's World Toilet Day, WaterAid Nigeria successfully inspired and informed a focus on the sanitation crisis by the Africa Independent Television (AIT) new network's feature stories - 'The Big Story'. The Big Story is a segment of the network's prime time news broadcast. 

AIT News is Africa's second largest broadcast news organisation, generating about 120 hours of radio and television air-time each day, as well as online news coverage. 

The Big Story also reported previous coverage of WaterAid Nigeria's activities on World Toilet Day and the launch of its global flagship report on sanitation.
