Clean water should be normal for everyone. But for too many people, it’s not.

You can help change this. Give your Zakat, and bring clean water and good hygiene to those who need it most. With your help, families can stay healthy, break free from poverty and thrive.

Your Zakat can make clean water a reality for communities in Bangladesh, Pakistan and Mali. You can help fund vital projects to make sure that children have clean water to drink. They can grow up healthy and strong, and go to school. Women and men get to earn a living. Whole communities will flourish.

Together, we can help change lives for the better.

Choose from our Zakat-applicable projects and 100% of your Zakat will help communities in Bangladesh, Pakistan or Mali. Our Zakat policy has been endorsed by Imam Shaykh Abid Khan, Islamic Scholar and legal specialist.

About us

We’re an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

Since 1981, we’ve directly reached 28 million people with clean water; 28 million with decent toilets; and 26 million with good hygiene.

Only by tackling these three essentials in ways that last can people change their lives for good. With our supporters and partners, we will change millions of lives for the better.

How we work

We work closely with partners internationally and on the ground in some of the toughest places in the world, to help achieve widespread change. Millions of people have already taken control of their lives and built better futures.

We do more than install taps and toilets. To make lasting change happen on a massive scale, we convince governments to change laws; link policy makers with people on the ground; change attitudes and behaviours; pool knowledge and resources; and rally support from people and organisations around the world.
