Post by Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor

wsupWSUP is a not-for-profit company that helps transform cities to benefit the millions who lack access to water and sanitation. We were created in 2005 as a response to the unprecedented urban explosion that has left cities unable to provide basic services, such as access to a toilet or drinking water, to low-income communities. We are based in the UK with offices in seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Since inception we have helped over 10 million people access better water and sanitation services.
