You could help solve a water,
sanitation and hygiene problem
on an international scale!
Winnovators is WaterAid's employee development program. It provides the opportunity for your staff to engage with and help further the work of WaterAid - work that is made possible through your ongoing support.
Winnovators provides a unique chance for cross-organisational teams within your business to collaborate and work together to develop solutions for challenges faced in the communities we work in.
Teams participating in Winnovators, will compete to solve a real-world water, sanitation and hygiene challenge currently faced by our Country Partner Papau New Guinea while learning new skills, thinking outside the box and raising valuable funds for WaterAid.
Who is WaterAid?
WaterAid is an international not-for-profit, determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.
Since we started in 1981, we’ve remained resolutely focused on tackling these three essentials that change people’s lives. Without all three, people can’t live dignified, healthy lives. With all three, they can unlock their potential, break free from poverty, and change their lives for good. Children grow up healthy and strong, women and men get to earn a living, whole communities start to thrive. It sounds normal and it should be.
Together, we will change millions of lives for the better – and change normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation.

“A key highlight has been meeting and collaborating with other Young Professional in completely different disciplines from across Asia-Pacific region. The teams have also enjoyed getting to know their team members and forming a strong foundation. Lastly the teams have been starting to get a glimpse into life in India and are keen to understand more as the Challenge continues.”
Lindsey Brown, Australian Market Leader - Water, GHD
“It’s been a really great opportunity for us to build relationships internally because the members of our team are all from different parts of water and waste, and some of us hadn’t worked together before.
We also come from different backgrounds so in terms of coming up with our solution, we have been able to draw our own personal experience from places we’ve worked differently in the world.
It’s been really fantastic and we really enjoyed the last few months.”
Jemma Purandare, City of Gold Coast Water and Waste
“Some benefits we saw from the program included engagement across the business and the diversity from the team really helped with the problem solving, and allowing us to think creatively and outside the box.”
