Why we're here
Ever wondered why people need help getting clean water, decent toilets and good sanitation? You’re not alone. Here are four reasons why we exist.

1. Water, toilets and hygiene are a human right
Extreme poverty cannot end until clean water, toilets and hygiene are a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere. Yet 785 million people live without clean water close to home, and 2 billion don't have a decent toilet of their own. And climate change is making the situation worse.

Women in particular waste precious time walking long distances to collect dirty water. Girls drop out of school because there are no private toilets to manage their periods. And approximately 289,000 children per year do not live to see their fifth birthday because of diarrhoeal diseases caused by dirty water and poor sanitation.

We may be called WaterAid, but our focus is resolutely on all three essentials: clean water, improved sanitation and proper hygiene.

2. There's no 'one-size-fits-all' solution
There is no blanket solution to helping people get clean water and toilets. A rural community suffering from drought and poor infrastructure will face very different obstacles to an urban community vulnerable to flooding.

3. Toilets and hygiene save lives
Globally, one in four people don’t have a decent toilet. People often have no choice but to go outside – increasing the risk of the spread of deadly diseases such as diarrhoea.

4. Together, we can help transform lives 
We make a bigger impact because we bring people together, actively encouraging collaboration so that many voices can be heard and ideas can spread. Together we achieve so much more.

We work together with partners to assess the local situation, before designing and delivering relevant, practical solutions based on our shared experience and evidence.

And to make lasting change happen on a massive scale we:

  • Convince governments to change laws
  • Link policy makers with people on the ground
  • Change attitudes and behaviours
  • Pool knowledge and resources
  • Rally support from people and organisations around the world
