Clean Water & Sanitation

Access to clean drinking water and sanitation facilities should be fundamental human rights.

2.2 billion people worldwide still do not have access to safe, clean drinking water, and over half of the world’s population does not have access to adequate sanitation facilities.

From building wells, repairing pipework from old infrastructure, to building toilet blocks and delivering education around good hygiene, our clean water and sanitation programme works to reduce disease and premature death due to a lack of access to these basic human needs.

This programme addresses 2 UN SDGs

Building on the principle of “leaving no one behind”, the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals emphasise a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development.
