South Africa is one of Africa’s most influential countries, especially across the southern region.
In 2012, the Water Research Commission – a group researching low-cost technologies for water, sanitation and hygiene in South Africa – offered to host us, and provided a central office in Pretoria.
This office builds strong partnerships with the South African government, other governments, and influential organisations across the region. We work together to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone in the entire south of the African continent.
Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good.
We are currently working with Kimberly-Clark's Baby Soft brand to build school toilets in Limpopo.
Four rand (R4) from each pack of Baby Soft Fresh white toilet tissue bought in South Africa will be donated to WaterAid. Funds raised will help provide life-changing clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene in schools.
