OUR PARTNERSHIP

OUR PARTNERSHIP

Belu has partnered with international development charity WaterAid since 2011, giving them all our profits to support their work in making clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. To date we’ve given WaterAid over £3 million.

We partner with WaterAid because they are global experts in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), and are therefore the natural choice for Belu to ensure the most ethical and sustainable return on funds we invest to improve the global water crisis.

Like WaterAid we believe that everyone, everywhere should have clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene. Aligning our business with supporting the achievement of Global Goal 6 ‘Water and sanitation for all’ of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we’re committed to working with WaterAid to 2030.

“Belu is a fantastic example of how business can collaborate successfully to create lasting social change, not only in the UK but globally too. Creating strong, impactful partnerships with organisations like Belu, is key in helping us reach Global Goal 6 and deliver clean water and decent toilets to everyone, everywhere by 2030”.

PROJECTS

PROJECTS

We invest in supporting our partner WaterAid’s work across 28 countries, including Madagascar where almost half of Madagascans have no clean water, and nine out of ten people have nowhere decent to go to the toilet. In September 2017, we travelled to Madagascar, Southern Africa with WaterAid to see the impact of Belu’s profits first-hand.

Being able to share the story of our social impact through WaterAid’s amazing work with our customers and other supporters is really important for the team at Belu. Back in 2013, our CEO Karen Lynch was invited to see first-hand some urban project work in New Delhi. Last year, some of our team were enormously privileged to be able to travel to rural Madagascar where we visited both communities who did not have clean water and others who had benefited from WaterAid’s work. We found the contrast mind blowing. The stories of people we met have inspired us even more to continue growing our business and make a greater impact.
