Story

Our vision is a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water, decent toilets and hygiene.

Our mission is to transform the lives of the poorest and most marginalised people by improving access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene.

Our values define our culture and unite us across the many countries in which we work. They are at the very heart of WaterAid - who we are, what we do and how we do it.

We work with local partners to help communities access clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. And we use our experience and research to influence decision-makers to do more to provide these vital services.

We only use practical technologies and make sure the right skills exist locally so that households, communities and service providers can keep services working long into the future.

By working with local partners we’re able to deliver lasting change. By investing locally, we know that they can continue the good work even after we’re gone.
