Around the world, our network of dedicated staff and local partners make our work happen.
In Australia, that includes our Board, Chief Executive and Senior Management Team.
Together, every decision they make ensures our work is efficient, effective and sustainable, and takes us closer to our goal: making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene a normal part of everyday life for everyone, everywhere.
Making change happen on a global scale
WaterAid Australia is part of a global federation, alongside six other members: America, Canada, India, Japan, the UK and Sweden. Together we work with partners around the world to unlock people’s potential with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
