We work with local partners to help communities access safe water and sanitation. And we use our experience and research to influence decision-makers to do more to provide these vital services.

We only use practical technologies and make sure the right skills exist in the community so they can keep them working long into the future. 

By working with local partners we’re able to invest in the future of local communities so that they can continue the good work. This is an essential part of our work as we believe it is the most progressive and sustainable approach.

Yet the sheer scale of the crisis means that we can’t solve it alone. So we work with communities to influence governments and other service providers to prioritise safe water and sanitation.

The incredible generosity and commitment of all our supporters – individuals, institutions and companies – is behind everything we do.
