We’re proud to be the official charity of Scottish Water, our supporters since 1981.

Scottish Water is working with WaterAid Scotland to help bring clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to women, girls and children in the southern region of Malawi. 

Right now, 1 in 3 people in Malawi do not have access to clean water. The water crisis places a heavy burden on communities, particularly women and girls. Often, women and girls are responsible for collecting water and the journey to and from water sources can take hours, which can affect school attendance and the ability to work.

Through this partnership and with support from the Scottish Government, WaterAid has been working to create lasting change in Malawi through the Deliver Life* project.

Deliver Life to Women, Girls and Children will help bring clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to health centres and early childhood development centres in Malawi. WaterAid will also work to empower women and adolescent girls to influence decisions and take action on issues which affect their health. 

This Christmas, you can help change lives for the better.

*This project was made possible with support from the Scottish Government’s International Development fund and Scottish Water employees and partners, who hold fundraising events and challenges to raise the additional funds needed to deliver this life-changing work.

About WaterAid

WaterAid has teams in 28 countries across the world, working with our partners to transform millions of lives every year by improving access to clean water, toilets and hygiene.

Since 1981, we’ve reached over 27 million people with clean water. But we can’t stop there.

In the last 39 years, we’ve gone from strength to strength to become one of the most respected organisations dealing solely with water, sanitation and hygiene issues.

What do WaterAid do?

While installing taps and toilets is essential to our work, we do so much more. We convince governments to change laws, link policy makers with people on the ground, pool knowledge and resources and rally support from people and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.

Why regular donations matter

Regular gifts by direct debit give us a predictable income so we can commit to helping more people. Plus direct debits mean we pay less in processing fees than for credit card gifts.

Our fundraising promise to you

We’ll use your donations in the best way possible. In every £1 we spent, 76p went on delivering services and making change happen and 24p went on fundraising and governance*
