Speaker Network Volunteer

WaterAid Speakers are trained volunteers that deliver inspiring talks and workshops, to raise awareness about the importance of clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene, to transform peoples’ lives for good. As a WaterAid Speaker you will deliver at least four talks or workshops a year, either online and/or face to face. An interest in WaterAid’s work, passion for public speaking, as well as competence in PowerPoint and email are all you need to get started as a Speaker.
