Why WaterAid?

Why are we different from everybody else?

We believe that sustainable impact comes as a result of working with local partners who understand the needs of each community and are committed to strengthening local capacity for the long term.

Here at WaterAid, we focus solely on all things WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene) and take a community-based approach to all of our projects. We believe that sustainable impact comes as a result of working with local partners who understand the needs of each community and are committed to strengthening local capacity for the long term. In addition to working with communities on the ground in each program country to ensure lasting change, we also have permanent offices in each country of operation.

We consistently increase our level of impact on the global water crisis by coupling our WASH efforts in-country with advocacy initiatives here in the U.S. and abroad. By lobbying decision makers both in the government sector and the international development sphere to make WASH related policies a priority, we are advancing global efforts to transform the landscape of the water crisis in our world.

We take pride in putting our supporters first, making sure they understand our mission and understand exactly where their dollars are going. We know that our work is fueled by people who have a heart for bettering our world.
