Thanks to incredible people like you, we’re closer than ever before to making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere.

In 2017-18 we helped millions of people achieve clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene by working together with communities, governments, businesses and civil society organizations. 

By working in partnership, we have strengthened institutions, provided models for others to replicate, and advocated for changes in policy and practice. 

Our aims are interconnected and complementary. They are:

  • Equality – we tackle the inequalities that prevent the poorest and most marginalised people from realising their rights to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. 
     
  • Sustainable services – we support governments and service providers to strengthen systems to deliver services that last.
     
  • Integration – we work with others to accelerate change by integrating water, sanitation and hygiene into sustainable development.
     
  • Hygiene – we positively influence hygiene behaviour to maximise the benefits of access to clean water and decent toilets. 

Our annual report lets you meet the people changing their lives, and see how your support is making a lasting difference around the world.
