The population of urban slums and settlements continues to grow, with the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable often overlooked.

Lives are at risk from a lack of clean water services and inadequate and unsafe sewage and refuse management

We challenge the idea that poor people should have to live in squalor. We’ve pioneered solutions that can help change cities for good.

We’re working with communities, municipalities and utility companies to deliver sustainable sanitation, water and waste management services that work for the poor. Together we’re improving hygiene practices and protecting the health, safety and dignity of poorly paid waste workers.
