We couldn't do the work we do without you, which is why we value your trust so highly. It's also why, when you make the decision to support us, we make this promise to you:

  1. We’ll use your donations to transform lives in the best way we can. 70% is spent enabling people to transform their lives with safe water, decent toilets and good hygiene, 23% is spent on fundraising and 7% is spent on accountability and administration costs (which include bank fees and regulatory costs).
  2. We’ll respect your privacy. We’ll never share your details with any other organisation or charity for their use.
  3. You can choose how often we contact you. Just call our Supporter Hotline on 1300 858 022 to let us know what you prefer.
  4. We’ll use your support to help deliver lasting solutions, not short-term fixes.
  5. We’ll share stories of the people you help.
  6. Together, we won’t stop until clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are a normal part of everyday life for everyone, everywhere
