Scott Pendrey

WaterAid was set up by the private sector: water industry companies came together to support an organization focused on water, sanitation and hygiene. Collaboration with companies is part of our history and at the heart of what we do.

We are looking for relationships that can grow over time, with people and organizations who share our vision. And we want to build unique partnerships that deliver great value for everyone.

You'll receive all the expertise we've learnt from working with the private sector for over 30 years, as well as advice and thought leadership to co-create long-term programs.
