2.4 billion people in poor communities around the world face a sanitation crisis. Those most affected are often societys most vulnerable and marginalized - women, children, the elderly, the disabled and those living in rural and remote areas.
The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) is at the heart of a global movement to improve sanitation and hygiene for everyone. Through the Global Sanitation Fund, WSSCC provides vital funding for community-based, publicly-supported and commercially-operated programmes, reaching millions of people.
WSSCC believes that that every person, everywhere, has a right to quality sanitation. By helping to make that right a reality, WSSCC transforms the lives of millions of people worldwide.
