Clean water is a human right and we want to live in a world where everyone, everywhere, has access to clean water, decent toilets and hygiene facilities. It is as simple as that. Right now, 785 million people do not have clean water close to home. 2.3 billion do not have access to a decent toilet. We want to change this because we need to change this.
WaterAid was founded in 1981 and so far we have reached 26.4 million people with clean water and equipped 26.3 million people with toilets. We do this one one village, one community, one district at a time and we're only just getting started. We have a 2020 Platinum Seal of Transparency from Guidestar. Please support our work.
Because clean water, toilets and hygiene matter. Together they save lives. In the long-term, they are the stepping stone towards real progress, in terms of education, employment, better health and economic opportunity. These three basics are fundamental to equip communities so they can flourish. Right now, in light of COVID-19, our teams are on the frontlines of the response, offering a wide array of services, from providing PPE in Nepal, to "no touch" sinks in Uganda and much, much more.
