Clean water, along with good sanitation and hygiene, are very effective in reducing poverty. It can help save lives, drive economic growth, keep children in school and increase opportunities for women and girls.

We support worldwide access to clean water and sanitation

Within our focus area Water, we work with WaterAid in a transformative program to create systemic change on a global scale. In addition to this, H&M Foundation supports local projects that have a direct impact on the sanitation and health of people around the world.
