Faith in Water

Faith in Water is a not-for-profit foundation that works with faith communities and secular organisations to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people through cleaner water, decent sanitation and good hygiene. Faith in Water grew out of the Alliance of Religions and Conservation (ARC), which was founded in 1995 to help the world’s major faiths develop environmental programmes based on their beliefs. Water and cleanliness have spiritual significance in many major faiths. Faith in Water aims to inspire faith groups to focus more on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in their teachings, traditions and practices; to broker partnerships between faith groups and secular organisations working in WASH. By building closer relationships between faith and secular organisations, they aim to help each group to work more effectively with each other – for the benefit of people, nature and the planet.
