Corporate Partnerships

Together we can make real change happen at a larger scale and thus enable a far bigger impact with partners.

While the global consciousness towards Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has always existed, the introduction of a new CSR Law – Section 135 of the Companies Act in recent years by the Indian government has added to its seriousness.

Many corporates across the globe have taken upon themselves to be a part of this social transformation to address various issues of importance. WaterAid India has been trusted and supported by many of them through grants on strategic projects in its mission to address water, sanitation and hygiene needs of some of the most marginalised communities.

Our aim is to reduce the level of water-related risk that people face. This is achieved by strengthening water supply service delivery and water resource management by empowering people. In addition, ensuring sanitation for all takes more than building toilets or motivating communities. We use our experience of delivering services to help governments and service providers identify blockages and improvements in their sanitation service delivery systems. Along with promoting and supporting the delivery of handwashing facilities in people’s homes, schools, health centres and other community spaces, we work on menstrual hygiene management (MHM). This entails promotion of good menstrual hygiene behaviour as well as breaking the taboos associated with it.

Put your company at the heart of something special

We focus on clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene – the three essentials that unlock progress for people, communities and economies worldwide.

This demands new approaches, huge resourcefulness and genuine innovation. That is why we develop strategic partnerships with businesses which are open to collaborating and co-creating new solutions.

With huge benefits for your company and the chance to transform lives, there are lots of great reasons to start a partnership with WaterAid.

Did You Know: Providing access to clean water is the number one cause that global consumers care about (Nielsen, Global CSR Survey, 2014)

Let’s get started

WaterAid was set up by the private sector: water industry companies came together to support an organisation that focused on water, sanitation and hygiene problems. Collaboration with companies is part of our history and at the heart of what we do.

We are looking for relationships that can grow over time, with people and organisations who share our vision. And we want to build unique partnerships that deliver great value for everyone.

You’ll receive all the expertise we’ve learnt from working with the private sector for over 30 years, as well as advice and thought leadership to co-create long-term programmes.

Partnering with WaterAid means we can drive progress together, united by a common purpose.
