Across the world, 3 in 10 schools don't have clean water, and 1 in 3 don't have decent toilets. You can change that.

Did you have clean water and toilets at school? Of course you did. It's just normal, right?

Around the world, 3 in 10 schools don't have clean water, and 1 in 3 don't have decent toilets.

Children can't get the education and the future they deserve without these basic essentials.

They can't concentrate in lessons or they get so sick they miss them entirely. Girls drop out because they can't deal with their periods privately or hygienically.

It's not fair and it shouldn't be normal. We want to change this.

Join The Water Fight and help give children everywhere the chance to turn their dreams into reality. 

Sign our petition today: 

“Every child, everywhere, deserves a fair chance to be healthy, happy and reach their full potential. I'm asking the UK Government to include taps and toilets for every child in their plans for schools worldwide."
