As a part of the global WaterAid federation, WaterAid Canada directly contributes to the planning and execution of specific programs around the world. Read below to learn about some of our recent and ongoing programs.
In collaboration with local communities, we construct toilet blocks, water taps, handwashing stations, and other vital WASH infrastructure. Across all our work, we use technologies that are low-cost, context-specific, and easily maintained. Our work goes beyond building physical structures. Installing taps and toilets is essential, but we do so much more. We also spread messaging and teach proper hygiene behaviours, such as handwashing, creating communities that are healthier and more resilient. We make a bigger impact because we bring people together, actively encouraging collaboration so that many voices can be heard, and ideas can spread.
