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. Around the world, 1 in 9 people don’t have clean water close to home, and 1 in 3 don't have a decent toilet of their own.

WaterAid is an international NGO, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
