Featured Charity: WaterAid

WaterAid’s history stretches back to 1981, when on 21 July they were officially established as a charitable trust.

In the last 33 years, they have gone from strength to strength, evolving into one of the most respected organisations dealing solely with water, sanitation and hygiene issues.

Over the course of those three and a bit decades money and support has assisted in influencing policy and practice to ensure that the vital role of water, hygiene and sanitation in reducing poverty is recognised globally.

Thanks to the amazing and continued commitment of WaterAid supporters, by the end of 2013  they had reached 19.2 million people with safe water and 15.1 million people with sanitation.

 

WaterAid’s four global aims are;

1. To promote and secure poor people’s rights and access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation.

2. To support governments and service providers in developing their capacity to deliver safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation.

3. To advocate for the essential role of safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation in human development.

4. To further develop an effective global organisation recognised as a leader in our field and for living our values.
