What we will provide to volunteers💸 Reimbursement of costs🤝 Extra support
Getting thereVenues are selected in response to local requests for talks, or by the volunteer if they arrange the talk.
We're working with our partners in some of the toughest places in the world. Together, we have reached millions of people with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, enabling entire communities to unlock their potential, break free from poverty and change their lives for good.
And while installing taps and toilets is essential to our work, we do so much more. We convince governments to change laws, link policy makers with people on the ground, pool knowledge and resources and rally support from people and organisations around the world, making lasting change happen on a massive scale.
