Everyday WaterAid: unique places, different challenges, same mission

Thumbnail

We work in many different countries around the world, each with their own unique culture and identity. But the mission of all WaterAid offices and staff is the same: clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene for everyone.

1 in 9 people around the world don't have clean water close to home; 1 in 3 don't have a decent toilet. That shouldn't be normal and we're working every day to change it.  

Our work shows that when a community gets clean water for the first time, it creates a ripple effect. It means children can stay healthy and in school, mothers can give birth safely in clean environments and parents have time to work and earn a decent living for their families.

We wanted you to get a flavour of the incredible places we work, so - with support from players of People's Postcode Lottery - we sent some of our global staff out with a 360 camera to do just that. Meet five of our incredible team members: Ernest in Madagascar, Sibtain in Pakistan, Samia in Bangladesh, Chipi in Malawi and Chileshe in Zambia.
