The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK’s work to end extreme poverty. We're ending the need for aid by creating jobs, unlocking the potential of girls and women and helping to save lives when humanitarian emergencies hit. DFID is a ministerial department, supported by .
WaterAid is an international non-profit organisation that was first set up as a response to the UN International Drinking Water & Sanitation decade (1981–1990). WaterAid works in 27 countries worldwide, transforming millions of lives every year with clean water, safe toilets and hygiene education. WaterAid works with local partners to help communities make toilets and taps accessible to all, and uses its experience and research to influence decision-makers to do more to provide these vital services. WaterAid is dedicated to helping people escape the poverty and disease caused by living without safe water and sanitation.
WaterAid's vision is of a world where everyone has access to clean water, safe sanitation and good hygiene.
WSSCC, together with its Members, staff, partners and donors, strives to achieve this vision. Such a vision is centered upon a belief that sanitation, hygiene and water supply coverage is a universal human right; that people and communities are catalysts of change and can be the focus of transformative action; and that the impact of sound sanitation and hygiene will positively benefit people’s health, dignity, security, livelihoods, as well economic status.
