This funding will help them survive the crisis and develop solutions for water, sanitation, health, hygiene and (waste) resource management challenges resulting from Covid-19 and climate change.


Continued response to ensure essential services for all


Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Aqua for All has reached out to several organisations to raise funds for water and sanitation enterprises (public and private). Responding to our call, several water and sanitation organisations and impact investors have partnered with us to provide grants and/or facilitate access to finance.

The WASH vs. Covid-19 Innovator Fund is the latest initiative supporting water and sanitation innovators and entrepreneurs that are hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic.

But it doesn’t end here: We keep looking for partners to establish innovative solutions to support water and sanitation enterprises. The current crisis requires immediate action to address their urgent challenges and make them resilient to withstand the Covid-19 crisis and its aftermath.
