One drink. One month. How hard can it be?

This March, we’re asking Australians to replace their favourite drinks with water to help raise funds and awareness for those who don’t have access to clean water.

Take the ultimate Water Challenge and make water your only beverage for the month. Or say goodbye to just one of your favourite drinks– caffeinated, alcohol or soft drinks. By taking part, you’ll be raising money for WaterAid and helping transform the lives of the 785 million people without access to clean water.

Water you waiting for, sign up now!

Take the Challenge


You too can do good for your health while doing good for the world. Take the fizz out of your drink, give your coffee a wake-up call and raise a glass to the one drink the world can’t live without. The Water Challenge is free to enter and all you have to do is challenge yourself to drink water as your only beverage in March.

Drinking more water and skipping caffeine, alcohol and sugary drinks can help with happiness, health and hydration. Funds raised from WaterAid’s Water Challenge will go towards sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene projects for our neighbours in Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea, and Cambodia.

“One in nine people worldwide do not have clean water close to home. Having clean water means less people will die from diarrhoeal diseases and less women and girls will need to make long, dangerous journeys to collect water. Without clean water people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene people can unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good,” said WaterAid Australia Chief Executive Rosie Wheen.
