Get involved

Unite with gamers and streamers to help bring clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to everyone, everywhere.

Whether you stream on Twitch, YouTube or any other live platform, join us to help raise money for our life-saving water, sanitation and hygiene work around the world.

Right now, we’re streaming to help improve girls' education in Nepal. Too many children in schools across Nepal don’t have a supply of clean, running water. Girls also often shoulder the responsibility of collecting water for their families. If they have no clean water close to their homes, they must fetch it from faraway sources. It is precious time they could be studying at home, or at school learning alongside the boys. What’s more, without decent toilets, clean water, and soap to wash with, or anywhere private to change or dispose of their sanitary pads, many girls miss school when they are on their periods. Girls can fall so far behind the boys at school that many drop out completely, with only one in three staying on past primary school. 

How to take part

Why Stream for Water

Globally, 771 million people – that’s 1 in 10 of us – don’t have clean water close to home, and 1.7 billion – over a fifth of the world’s population – don’t have a decent toilet. Without access to these basic human rights, people are denied the opportunities to go to school, stay healthy, and earn a decent living.

By taking part in Stream for Water, you can raise funds that will help us reach more people with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene – helping them to unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good.
