The Walking Stick

“The hidden agenda was to address the problem of exclusion, but the open agenda was to see that people got quality water and sanitation facilities in rural areas."

IT'S BEEN FOUR DECADES SINCE WE STARTED

From mobilising indigenous communities to fight for their rights to partnering with them to build better lives, our legacy is of a commitment to advancing equity and dignity for the poorest.
