To make change happen we influence those people with the power to act. We bring our supporters and local communities together to encourage decision-makers to make the necessary investment in water and sanitation.

How do we influence?

We won't change the situation on our own.

Because changing the policies of governments and other powerful institutions is an effective way of reaching millions more people with water and sanitation, we work hard to influence their decisions. 

By bringing together as many voices as possible – supporters, local communities, civil society, business, service providers – we have a better chance of getting the change we want. Our incredible supporters, and communities campaigning across the world, help to keep the water and sanitation crisis at the top of the agenda.

Alongside partners, we gather research and provide evidence of why water and sanitation are so important. We then present this information to decision-makers – locally, nationally and internationally – to make sure that our arguments are heard loud and clear.
