It’s hard to believe that today 844 million people do not have clean water and 2.3 billion do not have a decent toilet – around one in three of the world’s population. Every two minutes, a child under five dies from diarrheal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation.
We started because no NGO like us existed. We will end when no organisation like us is needed. In the meantime, we are making great progress – since 1981, we have reached 25 million people with clean water and, since 2004, 24 million people with sanitation.
WaterAid Tanzania is looking to fill the following vacancies below to play a vital role in our mission to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere by 2030.
