Since 1995, we have worked closely with partners and stakeholders to help people break free from poverty and disease, unlock their potential and change their lives for good through improved access to clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

We have contributed towards developing models and strengthening institutional capacities for enhanced sector governance and performance, and worked with other key sectors to integrate water, sanitation and hygiene into their development plans and priorities.

Together with our amazing partners, we have reached well over 3 million people with clean water, sanitation and hygiene, and we will not stop. Currently, we are providing capacity strengthening and technical support to Nigeria’s National Action Plan to revitalise the WASH sector.

We believe that clean water, adequate sanitation and good hygiene form the necessary first steps in helping people out of poverty, and together with our partners, we will bring about lasting change in the lives of millions of people.
