From advocacy to engineering, we cover a lot of ground, but the fundamentals of our work are simple:
Clean water infrastructure means people can access clean, running water 365 days a year.
Toilets matter more than you might think. Sanitation is fundamental for the dignity and health of a community.
Hygiene is the final piece of the puzzle. Good hygiene helps people stay healthier, it prevents the spread of diseases and allows people to flourish.
