MWA is a growing consortium of 18 leading WASH implementing NGOs, research institutions, and private sector partners. We seek to leverage the skills, knowledge, and additional funding that come from working in partnership.

MWA works with its members and others in global context addressing issues that confront the WASH sector everywhere. In three funded field programs, MWA coordinates the work of its members and other partners to achieve higher impact and share their learning across platforms.
