Work with hard to reach communities

At Water Can it is our shared mission to reach out and work with remote communities often missed out or left behind. It’s vital that everyone can enjoy safe water, adequate sanitation and good hygiene, every day, wherever they live.

Create Lasting Impact

Our work isn’t about one-off support: we promote self-sufficiency in everything we do. When people experience the real, lasting impacts on their lives they don’t want to go back to how it was before.

Change Lives

In countries that have instant access to safe water it is difficult to comprehend how important this fundamental human right is. Our aim is to ensure that access to safe water is a given, not a luxury that can only be dreamed of.


Many communities around the world face a daily struggle without access to safe water, leading to damaging consequences including illness, death, lack of opportunity, education and time. Our aim is to fulfil our vision of providing every community with safe water.

Wherever we live in the world, unsafe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene results in serious health problems which can quickly spread between households and communities.


Opportunity grows when people have better access to safe water: children have more chance to complete their education, providing a stronger starting point to their lives; with water for irrigation or small business ventures, earnings increase, reducing poverty and improving wellbeing.

Women and Girls

In most communities, women and girls are responsible for collecting water for their families, meaning walking great distances, instead of spending time on other community activities, earning money or going to school
