CAWST – Water, Sanitation & Hygiene


CAWST, the Centre for Affordable Water and Sanitation Technology, is a non-profit organisation that provides training and consulting to organizations that work directly with people in low- to middle-income countries who lack access to clean water and basic sanitation. Our vision is a world where people have the opportunity to succeed because their basic water and sanitation needs have been met.

We "walk beside" hundreds of organizations—government agencies, community groups, and local and international NGOs of all sizes—in 87 countries, as they develop their capacities to deliver water and sanitation programs locally. Our aim is to develop capacity so that, in the long-term, clients can operate independently without our assistance.

When you donate to CAWST, you are giving a Gift of Water to empower people to solve their water and sanitation challenges.

Two Special Donors are matching CAWST’s Gift Of Water donations this year. They are inviting new donors to join our cause and recognizing the invaluable support from all our existing donors over many years.

The Financial Post named CAWST one of Canada’s most efficient and accountable charities in 2017.
