WSUP helps transform cities to benefit the millions who lack access to water and sanitation. We work alongside local providers, enabling them to develop services, build infrastructure and attract funding so that they can reach low-income communities. We are based in the UK with offices in seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. As the urban specialist in water and sanitation, we are committed to sharing evidence and approaches so that our innovations can enable change around the world. Since inception we have helped over 10 million people access better water and sanitation services.
