With so many problems in the world it can be hard to know where to start. Yet we all know life starts with water and if we get the basics right first, a healthy, educated and flourishing society will always follow.

Worldwide, more than 1 in 2 people do not have access to a safe toilet and almost 1 in 3 do not have access to clean water. The figures are staggering. The problem remains one of the world’s most powerful sources of injustice, inequality and basic failures in human rights. And we’re an international non-profit organisation dedicated to changing this.

We’re frustrated by short-term interventions and one-off gifts of aid that frequently fail to deliver on their promise. For example, 1 in 3 pumps continue to fail within months of installation.We know there’s a better way to bring lasting change. And the world increasingly agrees. Our solution is simple. Create sustainable services, tailored to local circumstances.
We call this a systems approach. Let’s get you started: Discover how to help create a world where water, sanitation and hygiene services are available to everyone, not just some.
