WaterAid  At WaterAid, it’s our mission to bring clean water, toilets and hygiene to everyone, everywhere by 2030.

"From our school health club, I have learnt to wash my hands with water and soap especially after visiting the latrine and before eating food," says 12-year-old Mukisa, who lives in Uganda 🇺🇬. Today is #GlobalHandwashingDay, a day to remember that washing your hands is the easiest and best way to keep disease away! #washyourhands #uganda. Photo: @james_kiyimba

Today is International Day of the Girl, and we’re celebrating girls like Fiona - what an inspiration! She won’t stop until the girls in her village In Uganda 🇺🇬 know what they need to know about hygiene and sanitation. #dayofthegirl #uganda.

"Life without clean water is worse for a person living with HIV. Strength for the body to fight disease is low and drinking dirty water makes it even worse."

Marionette has been a teacher at a school in #Madagascar for 36 years. Nearly all of that time, the school didn’t have water. Now, things are changing, “we are very proud of what we have achieved so far in terms of water, sanitation and hygiene in school.” #WorldTeachersDay. Photo: @ernestrandriarimalala

"My dream was to become a doctor or a teacher. If I stayed in school I could have made a difference in the lives of others”. 18 year old Azmatun, who lives in India 🇮🇳, dropped out of school to help her family collect water.

How much does having a proper toilet mean to you? For Irene, who lives in Madagascar 🇲🇬, it means a huge amount. She has paralysis in her leg due to having polio when she was a child, and before WaterAid worked in her community the lack of toilets was very limiting for her. Things have changed and Irene is particularly happy about how this will help the younger generation: “I am so happy for the children in my village now, because even though some of them are physically disabled, they are able to keep studying because almost every school in our commune has running water and nice, adapted toilets for them. It was not the case when I was young.” #madagascar. Photo: @ernestrandriarimalala

Imagine having to walk 2.5km twice a day just to collect water, and that water isn't even clean. That's something 17 year old Rekha, who lives in Nepal, has to do. And it makes her miss a lot of school. "If water is accessible near my home, the first thing is that I can attend school on time. My time will be saved. I wouldn't have to carry heavy jerry cans and walk a difficult journey. I can get more time to study. I can complete my homework." #nepal. Photo: @kpmani

“We are more affected by water than poverty.

“I dream of becoming a doctor. I want to save lives. I want to make my country proud. I want my parents to hold their heads high and take pride in my achievements", says 12 year old Ilyas, who lives in India. Something holding Ilyas back is his family's lack of access to clean water. "My mother has a hundred other household chores to look into. So, it is usually my responsibility to go to the river to fetch water. It takes up a lot of time over day. As a result, I am often late for school and get scolded by the teachers for it." #india #cleanwaterforall. Photo: @prashanthvishwanathan
