I am contacting you on behalf of the international charity WaterAid.
I have been trained by WaterAid to speak in the Anglia area about their work. I or one of our local speakers would love to visit your group to speak about WaterAid and our work in 26 countries worldwide.
WaterAid is an international non-governmental organisation. Our mission is to transform lives by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation in the world’s poorest communities. Currently one in ten people live without access to safe water, and have to walk many miles every day to fetch dirty water. Two in five people live without access to sanitation facilities. The lack of these basic human rights leads to 2,000 children dying every day from diarrhoeal diseases.
WaterAid and our local partners use practical solutions, and simple sustainable technologies to provide safe water, effective sanitation and hygiene education to the world’s poorest people. We also seek to influence policy at national and international levels. I have attached/enclosed a leaflet that gives a little more information on WaterAid.
I am happy to talk about WaterAid generally, or focus on particular countries, people, or themes of our work. The talk can be as long or as short as you wish. There is no compulsion for any donation or fundraising after, although of course anything helps the charity and would be much appreciated.
We would love to be able to speak to as many groups as possible over the next year. I wondered if you would be able to circulate this to your contacts in the area too. If you would like to discuss any of the above, or if you would like to arrange for us to come and speak to your group, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 07880 742733
