It’s hard to believe that today millions of Malawians still don’t have safe water and decent sanitation, resulting in immense suffering, disease and loss of productivity. WaterAid’s vision is of a world where everyone has access to safe water and sanitation. By 2030, we want everyone in Malawi to have clean water, sanitation and hygiene. We believe that sustainable development cannot be achieved in Malawi without the attainment of rights to water, sanitation and hygiene for all.

Do you want to be part of the team that will make this change happen?
