We started in 1981 because no charity like us existed. We'll end when no charity like us is needed. 

Extreme poverty won't end until everyone, everywhere has clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.

 We're determined to make that happen within a generation – and we believe the best way to do it is by working with others.

That's why we're part of an active global network. Advisors, debate shapers, policy makers, engineers, campaigners and fundraisers - all of us here at WaterAid are working towards a common goal: getting watertoilets and hygiene to the millions of people still living without these basic human rights. 

By working together, we can enable entire communities to unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.
