Belu has partnered with the charity WaterAid since 2011, giving them 100% of our net profit to help make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. By choosing Belu, you’re helping to transform lives worldwide.
1 in 10 people still don’t have clean water to drink and 1 in 4 people don’t have access to a decent toilet.
We invest in WaterAid’s work across 28 countries so that they can work where the need is greatest, to bring clean water to everyone, everywhere within a generation.
To date, we’ve given WaterAid more than £4 million, enough to transform over 270,000 lives worldwide with clean water.
“When you see how the profits your business has invested are transforming lives, it changes your view on the purpose of business forever” – Karen Lynch, CEO Belu.
“Belu is leading the way for social enterprises to have increasing global impact through good business and innovation. The collaboration between WaterAid and Belu is truly unique – if we can do this in a year, just imagine the impact we can have together by 2030” – Tim Wainwright, CEO, WaterAid UK
In 2017, we travelled to Madagascar with our partner WaterAid to see the impact of Belu’s profits first-hand. Almost half of Madagascans have no clean water, and 90% of the population have nowhere decent to go to the toilet. Visiting communities who didn’t have clean water, and others who have benefited from WaterAid’s work was a mind-blowing contrast. The stories of people we met including people like Sabine (pictured) have inspired us to continue growing our business and make a greater impact.
Just before our visit, WaterAid had confirmed a plan to install two pumps in Sabine’s village with a gravity-fed water system, and Sabine was nominated as the voluntary President of the Committee responsible for overseeing water, sanitation and hygiene in the village. Water arrived in Sabine’s village in 2018 and her village now has clean water to drink for the very first time.
