More about WaterAid:
Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are basic human rights. They should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere – but they aren't. The charity WaterAid work with their partners in some of the toughest places in the world. Together, they've already reached millions of people with these three essentials, enabling entire communities to unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.

And while installing taps and toilets is essential to their work, they do so much more. WaterAid works to convince governments to change laws, link policy makers with people on the ground, pool knowledge and resources and rally support from people and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.
