Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) is a not-for-profit company that helps transform cities to benefit the millions who lack access to water and sanitation.
We were created in 2005 as a response to the unprecedented urban explosion that has left cities unable to provide basic services, such as access to a toilet or drinking water, to low-income communities.
WSUP consists of a not-for-profit company, a wholly owned Community Interest Company subsidiary, a Charity, along with various branch and subsidiaries in Africa and Asia.
We work in seven countries in sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, supported by an office in the UK. Since inception we have helped 20 million people access better water, sanitation and hygiene services.
