Challenge 2030

Work with your class or school to raise £2,030
Who can get involved:
KS1-KS3 and the wider school community
No limit - it could be a week, a term or a year!

By 2030 we want everyone, everywhere to have clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Reaching this goal is a big challenge – and we'd like your school's help to turn it into a reality.

How does it work?

Challenge 2030 has a simple goal: raise £2,030 as a school or class and help make clean water, toilets and hygiene a normal part of daily life for children who still don't have them. And we're not alone! In 2015, world leaders signed up to Global Goal 6, an agreement that everyone, everywhere should have access to these essential services.

Use our lesson plans and case studies to get your class engaged with our 2030 goal and excited about their fundraising. We'll send you interactive updates each term about the communities your pupils are helping.

You can also book a free WaterAid speaker to come into your school and run a workshop or assembly about the difference school fundraising makes to people's lives. 

Then sing, swim, bake or bike – or fundraise in any way you wish – to reach your school's goal of £2,030 or more!


Why take part?

Challenge 2030 is designed to be rewarding for both teachers and pupils. Here are just some of the reasons to take part:

  • Save time: our free learning resources save you, the teachers, valuable time planning lessons. What's more, you can gain support from our amazing volunteers in the Speaker Network by arranging a talk for your class.
  • Community spirit: a common goal (for example, a fundraising challenge) unites the entire school community and encourages teamwork. 
  • Transferable skill set: students develop practical numeracy and organisational skills through planning fundraising activities.
