It’s hard to believe that today over 663 million people still don’t have clean, safe water and over 2.4 billion live without a toilet. The resulting diseases kill one child every minute.

Nearly 60 million people – 31% of the Nigerian population – do not have access to safe water; while 71% of the population lacks access to basic sanitation, that’s over 130 million people without a toilet! Around 45,000 children under the age of five in Nigeria die from diarrhoeal diseases caused by the nation’s poor levels of access to water, sanitation and hygiene.

WaterAid is looking for a Human Resources and Organisational Development Officer to play a vital role in changing this narrative and contribute to our mission to transform lives with safe water, sanitation and hygiene in the world’s poorest communities
