To do so, we transfer knowledge and skills to organizations and individuals in low- and middle-income countries through education, training, and consulting resources and services. In turn, our clients catalyze local leaders, trainers, and change agents into taking action to meet their water, sanitation, and hygiene needs. Since 2001, CAWST's network of clients has expanded to over 5,000 organizations worldwide across 190+ countries. Collectively we are making a difference at a scale beyond what any of us could reach individually. Together, we are helping millions of people to have better water, sanitation, or hygiene.

Our vision is a world where people have the opportunity to succeed because their basic water and sanitation needs have been met.
