Watershed Voices of empowerment

Strong civil society leaders share how they are fighting to bring safe water and sanitation to their communities.

For the past five years, the Watershed empowering citizens programme has proudly been championing the voice of civil society. It's been guided by the simple truth that with the right tools, strategies and partnerships, citizens are able to amplify the needs of their communities, hold those in power to account and improve lives.

We are excited to share a series of videos celebrating the passion, courage and grit of all the individuals tirelessly fighting to make water, sanitation services a reality for all, starting with their communities.

Watch. Be inspired. Be like them. Raise your voice.

Listen to their advice. If they can do it so can you.
