WaterAid has been working in India for over 3 decades to help people get access to clean water, decent toilets, and good hygiene.


Water is the elixir for life and many people across India find the easy availability of water still a luxury. In India, 600 million people face high to extreme water stress (Niti Ayog 2018). Our campaign ‘Heroes of Change’ aims to empower individuals across communities with the tools and wisdom required to provide their villages with access to clean water. During our endeavours, we came across some highly dedicated, motivated, and hardworking citizens that shine out and embody the spirit of what it means to be a Hero of Change and we would like to continue this movement on a larger scale with your encouragement and support. Donate to support the efforts of these ” Heroes of Change”

Why WaterAid?


WaterAid India seeks to improve access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone, everywhere.

We started in 1986 because no non-profit like us existed. We are determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. Only by tackling these three essentials, in ways that last, can people change their lives for good.
