About WaterAid Canada:

Founded in 1987, WaterAid Canada (formerly known as WaterCan) works in partnership with local organizations in 37 countries such as Nicaragua, Kenya, Uganda and Bangladesh. The charity aims to help the poorest and most marginalized communities in these countries to set up practical and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene projects.

In mid-2014, the charity became the Canadian member of WaterAid, the leading global NGO federation focused exclusively on improving poor people’s access to safe water, improved hygiene and sanitation in developing countries. WaterAid has the goal of providing safe water to everyone in the world by 2030.

In F2014, WaterAid Canada reached 1.7m people with safe water and 2.2m people with sanitation. The charity also organized 4,000 education sessions focused on menstrual hygiene in Bangladesh.
