Philanthropy and trusts
Clean water, toilets and hygiene transform lives. With all three, people are able to break free from poverty. Children are born healthier and get the chance to go to school. Women and men get to earn a living, and whole communities start to thrive.
That’s why our goal is simple: getting these essentials to everyone, everywhere. And with your support, it's something we can achieve, within a generation.
While installing taps and toilets is a key part of our work, we do so much more.
In Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea, for example, we are working with local schools and communities to help girls complete their education. When schools can offer clean water and hygiene facilities, such as private girl’s toilets, girls are more likely than ever to go and stay in school. Education unlocks a girls potential freeing her to create her own future free of poverty.
And that's just the start. We influence governments across the world to change laws, link national and international policymakers with people on the ground, and rally support from individuals and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.
Whether you want to support WaterAid’s work all over the world or focus on a specific project, we will connect you with a dedicated relationship staff member who will bring you even closer to the people you’re helping with regular progress reports and stories of lives changed.
Your updates will include photos and insight from the communities you support, so that you can see the lasting impact brought about by your incredible contribution.
There will also be opportunities to attend exclusive events, meet with like-minded supporters and involve your family and children in your philanthropic activities.
