This exciting programme gives you and your colleagues the opportunity to help WaterAid reach more people with safe water and toilets while getting a unique learning experience.
We’ll provide you with four challenges based on real water, sanitation and hygiene-promotion problems faced by the WaterAid team in Nicaragua where 800,000 people don’t have access to clean, safe water, and two million live without access to a decent toilet.
All you need to do is put together a team of six to eight motivated people. Your team will choose between a water, sanitation, hygiene or legal finance challenge, and work on an innovative solution that could be put into practise in our work in Nicaragua.
What’s more, your team will get the chance to do some real good by organising your own creative fundraising projects to raise more than £5000 to support WaterAid projects. Following a Dragons’ Den style pitch you could win seed funding to help you on your way.
The overall winning team will get the chance to visit our country programme in Nicaragua (see the terms and conditions here).
The fundraising contribution you make to WaterAid will bring about lasting change by bringing clean, safe water, toilets and hygiene to communities around the world.
At the same time you’ll learn new skills and leadership qualities to bring to your workplace. Of participants of Water Innovators 2016,
- Almost 96% told us they developed skills that can be applied in the workplace.
- 92% would recommend Water Innovators to others.
- 92% achieved their personal learning objectives.
And that's not all. They also gained communication, influencing and team work skills (92%, 90% and 91% respectively) that would enhance their performance at work.
