Get Involved

WaterAid and Aveda Canada have succeeded in partnership for more than 13 years.

Through the power of Aveda salons, spas, stores, institutes, guests, and supporters like you, Aveda Earth Month strives to help those in need of clean water, decent toilets and basic hygiene.

Aveda Canada (Collega International) participates annually as part of a global initiative with other Aveda Networks worldwide to raise money and awareness of water related issues. Aveda Earth Month is dedicated to ending the world water crisis. In partnership with WaterAid, they believe this goal is achievable.

Aveda Canada has committed to something truly amazing.

Stand Up for Clean Water

From April 2016 to March 2019, the Aveda Canada network has worked hard to support two of Madagascar’s poorest municipalities – Belavabary and Sabotsy Anjiro, together the size of Calgary. Each year they have raised funds through the Earth Month campaign so that these communities will have clean water, good toilets and decent hygiene. This means that every school, every health clinic, every village – everyone, everywhere – will have access to clean, safe drinking water.

Just imagine, 20,000 children, women and men will have their lives transformed when they gain access to this precious resource, many for the first time in their lives. No more illness and death because of dirty water, no more hours wasted carrying water from distant sources – just better, brighter futures because of the fantastic Earth Month supporters.

Madagascar's water crisis

11.7 M people in Madagascar don't have access to clean water.


88% of people in Madagascar don't have access to decent toilets.


4,000 kids under five die each year from lack of clean water and decent toilets.


13 years of Aveda impact

Aveda Canada has raised more than $5 million to help reach over 180,000 people with “taps and toilets”, and their engagement activities across the country have helped to keep this vital issue at the forefront of people’s minds.

Building on our experience and achievements in Madagascar, WaterAid and Aveda Canada will extend our work beyond year three for an additional year in a new community.  These interventions will reach approximately 1,475 people in Ambohidronono municipality.

On behalf of WaterAid Canada’s staff, Board, volunteers and community partners, congratulations to each and every Aveda Earth Month participant for your hard work and dedication to this important cause! Your support of WaterAid’s vision of clean water, sanitation and hygiene for everyone, everywhere by 2030, is helping change the world. WaterAid is incredibly appreciative of AVEDA’s long-standing commitment to improving the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves.
