Mission, Vision & Values
The Global Interfaith WASH Alliance (GIWA) is world’s first initiative that is engaging the planet’s many faiths as allies in efforts to create a world where every human being has access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and proper hygiene. GIWA envisions a water-secure world in which safe and sustainable drinking water and improved sanitation will be accessible for everyone everywhere
GIWA’s mission is rooted in the power of faith and faith-based messaging to expand the definition of peace, to work together across diverse faith traditions in creating a just, peaceful, and pollution-free world with health, hygiene and harmony for all. GIWA is also working to harness and channel the power of faith to abate climate change, protect the environment, and bring about gender equality and women’s empowerment.
A water-secure world in which universal access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and proper hygiene will be achieved by inspiring and equipping spiritual leaders and civil society to collaborate across faiths, nations, and peoples for the health and well-being of all.
