Rethinking how communities get essential services, sustainably.


Giving away products like toilets has long been a disaster. We take a different approach. WaterSHED builds the market for water, sanitation, and hygiene products where businesses thrive and consumers have choice. We focus on the whole system and strengthen the parts that support a dynamic and resilient market.
