Support with your company or organization

Water is one of the most important themes of our time. Join For Water is the only NGO in Belgium that solely focuses on water. And focus is needed: 1 in 10 people do not have access to clean water and 1 in 3 people do not have their own toilet. With support of your organization, we can make a difference!

A one-time donation or a long-term partnership? Following a specific project? Supporting Join For Water by drinking tap water or organizing a fundraising campaign? Supporting our communication? The options are endless.

Join us!

11.11.11 is the umbrella organisation of the Flemish North-South movement of which Join For Water is a member. 11.11.11 actively intervenes in the shaping of Flemish, Belgian and international sustainable development policies. Join For Water is an important partner in this process and receives financial aid, generated by the annual 11.11.11 campaign, for its activities in the South.


Flemish Partnership Water for Development: (Vlaams Partnerschap Water voor Ontwikkeling - VPWvO): VPWvO is a platform consisting of actors from the Flemish Government, the public (drinking) water companies, private companies active in or around water, the Flemish academic and research world, NGOs and Associations without lucrative purposes. They provide, by means of cooperation, an extra contribution to achieving the international component of the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6) “Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all”


Early 2003, the Flemish intercommunal drinking water company TMVW decided to help finance the Join For Water drinking water programme in Ecuador’s Sierra Sur region. Since 2008, TMVW is also sponsoring a Join For Water project for drinking water and sanitation in the Kivu provinces and Ituri district of East-Congo. (In 2014 TMVW changed its name to Farys)

De Watergroep

De Watergroep (formerly known as The Flemish Water Supply Company - Vlaamse Maatschappij voor Watervoorziening) and Join For Water have had a partnership agreement since 2003. From 2006 to 2008, the company sponsored the Join For Water programme “Drinking water and sanitation in the inner delta of the Niger” in Mali. Then, in 2009, “De Watergroep” decided to support the Join For Water drinking water programme in Toamasina, Madagascar. With Join For Water as a go-between, “De Watergroep” was also able to contract a public-public partnership with JIRAMA, the public urban water supply company in Madagascar.

Antea Group is an international engineering and environmental consulting firm, serving clients ranging from national governments and local municipalities to global energy companies and manufacturers. We are active in areas such as Urban Planning, Mobility, Water, Infrastructure, Civil Engineering, Environment, Safety and Energy. Adopting a pragmatic approach, we work to meet each client’s specific needs.

Together with Join For Water, we have committed ourselves to develop and provide sustainable water management structures and tools in Uganda and Mali.


To provide drinking water, to treat waste water and to guarantee a sound water policy are major responsibilities for communities and cities. Our public administrations must ensure citizens have permanent access to these services. In order to meet these responsibilities, local governments, both here and in the South, need adequate administrative powers. As the umbrella organisation representing the local governments of Flemish cities and communities, VVSG strongly supports the partnership approach of Join For Water in Benin.

Ondernemers voor Ondernemers

Ondernemers voor Ondernemers (Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs) wants to encourage the dialogue between NGOs and private enterprise. Both have an important task in our society and yet they are often still perceived as radically opposed. Both worlds can bridge this gap through dialogue, consultation and tangible fundraising for sustainable socio-economic NGO projects.

ecobeton water technologies

Initially a simple concrete factory and today a technological company active in the concrete and water sector, Ecobeton water technologies felt an immediate affinity for Join For Water. The direct approach, non-nonsense style and clear and detailed description of the project won our trust and convinced us to endorse a relevant existing water project for the underprivileged in the context of our 100th anniversary.


Aquafin is responsible for financing, building and operating the domestic wastewater treatment infrastructure in Flanders. Our research department focusses on techniques to purify and recycle the recuperated wastewater for further use in applications that do not require drinking water. After all, clean water is a scarce commodity.

Nationale Loterij

For projects that pursue the UN Millennium Development Goals, the National Lottery is more than a “lucky break”. Every year, the National Lottery sets aside 1 million euro in subsidies to fulfil its principal mission of serving public welfare, making it undoubtedly Belgium’s largest Maecenas.


The theme park Hidrodoe is a project launched by the public drinking water company Pidpa to inform people of the immense value of water. Through 80 entertaining and interactive experiments and fun facts, Hidrodoe provides the general public with a mass of water-related information. A new exhibition, developed in collaboration with Join For Water, tells visitors of the importance of water in the world’s fight against poverty, illiteracy and disease.


In September 2008, Pidpa created “Hidroplus” to coordinate its financial efforts and support for development projects related to water resources and sanitation. A yearly budget of 50.000 euro is set aside. The first sponsored projects were announced on World Water Day 2009. Every year, Pidpa Hidroplus sponsors a number of Join For Water projects.

KrisKras sponsors and visits the Join For Water projects in Ecuador.

KU Leuven

International cooperation and support for developing countries is a fundamental task of Flemish universities. KU Leuven and its professors contribute through their research on topics relevant to development. Sharing and transferring our water related expertise, however, is of utmost importance, as the direct interaction between water and development has been clearly proven. From a strategic point of view,our partnership with Join For Water is complemental whereby KU Leuven focusses on developing expertise in water technology at the local universities in the South. However, the partnership with Join For Water also allows for more direct contributions towards development.

Nature Solutions

Nature Solutions assists companies that want to optimize their water policy. Over the years we have built a broad expertise on sustainable water management and infrastructure. Tailored to the needs and in function of the environmental impact we deliver studied solutions. We want to use our knowledge and experience to mitigate or prevent the impact on climate change. Therefore Nature Solutions engages with Join For Water for a program on water access and management in the departments of Mono and Couffo in southern Benin.
