University and RAG fundraising

Layout 2

Are you passionate about everyone having access to clean water? Do you want to make a difference during your time at university? Get involved with WaterAid as a student and turn your passion into action.

Here in the UK, we probably take clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for granted. But millions of people still don't have these vital services. Help us make them normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation - there are so many ways to get involved...

Become a Student Ambassador

As a Student Ambassador for WaterAid, you’ll be the voice of WaterAid at your university. You will unite your fellow students to the WaterAid cause and boost your fundraising efforts on campus. You’ll take action to:

Educate your university community about the importance of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to end extreme poverty and inequality.
Campaign for government action on the water and sanitation crisis.
Fundraise to support WaterAid’s work and mission.

Along the way you’ll develop useful skills and meet like-minded people, as well as gaining some fantastic experience to add to your CV. We'll write you a glowing reference, too.

Skydives. Head shaves. Walks across the length of the country carrying a bag of sand. All legit ways incredible people have fundraised for us - and you could join them. Or if you prefer something a little less daring, a humble cake sale always goes down well.

If you’re part of your university RAG, why not nominate WaterAid as your charity of the year?

Join or start a society

Groups of dedicated students are starting and growing WaterAid Societies, acting as campaigners, fundraisers, lobbyers and all-round legends. Join them, won’t you?

Why not set up your own society?

We’ll be on hand to support you every step of the way.
