What we aim to solve New!

Water is a necessity for everyone and yet it remains a luxury to many people around the world. Every person needs a sustainable supply of clean water: for drinking, washing, cooking and cleaning. It is a basic human right and still there are 844 million people that do not have clean water. To date, governments, institutions and service providers around the world haven’t done enough to ensure clean water reaches the poorest and most marginalized people leaving millions of people underserved. In many countries, taps, wells and pipes delivering clean water simply do not exist and even where they do, water supply services are often not affordable or accessible, or aren’t designed to last.

WaterAid is committed to ensuring that everyone, everywhere has access to safe water and sanitation by 2030.

Extreme poverty cannot be eradicated without universal access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. These basic services are human rights: everyone on our planet needs them to live healthy, dignified and productive lives.

After three years of advocating globally, we were thrilled to see water and sanitation included as one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in September 2015.

We believe extreme poverty cannot be eradicated without universal access to these basic services. Everyone on our planet needs them to live healthy, dignified and productive lives. Our 2015-2020 Global Strategy is designed to accelerate transformational change towards our vision of a world where everyone, everywhere has safe water, sanitation and hygiene. We believe extreme poverty cannot be eradicated without universal access to these basic services. Everyone on our planet needs them to live healthy, dignified and productive lives.

WaterAid works in 34 countries and campaigns globally with our partners to drive change and realize our vision of a world where everyone has access to these basic human needs. We have more than 30 years' experience of bringing water, sanitation and hygiene education to where it is needed most by investing in local partners and providing financial support, training and technical advice, so they can deliver the project and ensure long-term sustainability.

WaterAid uses a range of methods to to determine the best approach and monitor and evaluate our programs, such as baseline data collection and stakeholder mapping.

After an intervention is completed, WaterAid conducts Post Implementation Monitoring Surveys, or PIMs. These are statistically significant surveys that assess the functionality of waterpoints (such as handpumps, wells, and boreholes) and to ensure the community is able to use and maintain them.

Along with audited financial statements, WaterAid also publishes a report on its work annually, see http://www.wateraid.org/us/who-we-are/annual-reports.

To date, WaterAid has reached 24.9 million people with access to clean water. Just last year, in 2017/18, our most recent fiscal year, WaterAid reached 321,000 households with clean water, 405,000 households with decent toilets and 1.4 million households with good hygiene. We also helped to successfully advocate for the first-ever global goal devoted exclusively to water and sanitation - one of 17 new Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in September, 2015. However, the need is still enormous, with 884 million people still living without safe water and 2.3 billion without access to basic sanitation. WaterAid is committed to ensuring that everyone, everywhere has access to safe water and sanitation by 2030. Extreme poverty cannot be eradicated without universal access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. These basic services are human rights: everyone on our planet needs them to live healthy, dignified and productive lives.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
