You could also join or set up a WaterAid society on campus. This is both rewarding and fun, and is a great to meet new people, enhance your CV and transform the lives of some of the world's poorest people.

Volunteering overseas

As WaterAid's work involves helping local organisations and community groups to plan, implement and maintain their own water and sanitation projects, we are unable to offer volunteer opportunities for overseas placements.
