>About the opportunity:
Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene are basic human rights and crucial for overcoming poverty. These basic human rights should be a normal part of daily life for everyone, everywhere – but they aren't. That's why WaterAid is here.
WaterAid Speakers are trained volunteers that deliver inspiring talks and workshops, across the UK, to raise awareness about the importance of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, to transform peoples’ lives for good.
Our Speaker volunteers engage people about the important work of WaterAid, inspiring them to take action, as they speak with schools, universities, businesses, youth groups, religious places of worship, service organisations, and many more community groups.
WaterAid enables the world's poorest people to gain access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene education. These basic human rights underpin health, education and livelihoods and form the first, essential step in overcoming poverty.
We work with local partners who understand local issues and we provide them with skills and support. This empowers them and local communities to set up and manage practical and sustainable projects that meet communities real needs. We also campaign locally and internationally, to change policies and practice, and to ensure water and sanitation's vital role in reducing poverty is recognised.
