Do you want to make a difference? A donation made personally, through your private ancillary fund or charitable trust could help unlock the potential of entire communities with access to the three essentials: clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

Why WaterAid

Clean water, decent toilets and good 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. Whole communities start to thrive. That’s why our goal is simple: getting these three essentials to everyone, everywhere within a generation.

In Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste 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 girls’ toilets, girls are more likely than ever to go and stay in school. Education unlocks a girl’s 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.

Secondary school students at a school in Timor-Leste are proud to have new facilities that are specific to their needs.

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.
