Clean water gives children the chance to be kids.
The chance to be healthy and to spend time in school. To dream. Thanks to people like you, children like Kokoyeh, Lucy and Nancy in Sierra Leone now have access to clean water. But we can't stop now.
785 million people worldwide don’t have clean water close to home. For many children, it means spending their precious childhood walking to collect water instead of attending school.
We'll keep working until everyone, everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. But we can’t do it without you.
Will you help make a change by donating today?
WaterAid has teams in 28 countries across the world, working with our partners to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene.
Since 1981, we’ve reached over 27 million people with clean water. But we can’t stop there.
In the last 39 years, we’ve gone from strength to strength to become one of the most respected organisations dealing solely with water, sanitation and hygiene issues.
What do WaterAid do?
While installing taps and toilets is essential to our work, we do so much more. We convince governments to change laws, link policy makers with people on the ground, pool knowledge and resources and rally support from people and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.
Why regular donations matter
Regular gifts by direct debit give us a predictable income so we can commit to helping more people. Plus direct debits mean we pay less in processing fees than for credit card gifts.
