We advocate for change at a local, national and global level.

Our aim is to encourage individuals, organisations and governments to action on water poverty and the global water crisis.

At a local level, we focus on specific issues such as lack of toilets or knowledge of the risks of poor hygiene. Using our small-scale projects as evidence of success, we advocate to local governments to leverage funds for water and sanitation infrastructure.

Thanks to the partnerships we build with other organisations, we can take collective action to solve the knottiest problems that the water sector faces. Over the last few years, we’ve worked closely with global engineering consultancy Arup and two of India’s best-known NGOs to provide water and sanitation to tribal communities using the principles of integrated water resource management (IWRM). The lessons we’ve learned along the way will add to the knowledge base in the sector.

We change the way that governments approach and address the water crisis by presenting them with new ways of doing things. We provide them with hydrological expertise and planning. This way, we can amplify our impact and, importantly, build a more sustainable model for the future, that’s centred around the relationship between communities and their government.
