WaterAid is an international charity established in 1981. Our vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. Presently, WaterAid works in 27 countries worldwide, transforming millions of lives every year with safe water, sanitation and hygiene projects. WaterAid believes that water, sanitation and hygiene education are vital for the health, well being and dignity of poor people and provide the foundation for development and poverty reduction.
WaterAid began working in India in 1986 and now provides water, sanitation and hygiene education to people in 11 states. It is headquartered in Delhi and has four regional offices. WaterAid India works on improving water-sanitation and hygiene in rural and urban areas and schools, especially among the poor and marginalised. It provides critical support to the government to “Make WASH poverty a History”. Its programmes are aligned to a rights-based framework, enabling communities to demand services and take active part in the local governance processes. The service delivery work on the ground and the lessons are used as evidence for engaging at local and state governments and in national level advocacy for reforms in policy and practice.
