This April, sign your netball team up to Goals for Water to raise money for lifesaving safe water projects that support women and girls living in some of the world’s poorest communities.
The challenge is easy - choose one match during April 2017 and dedicate your Goals for Water. Ask your friends, family and local businesses to sponsor you for each goal your team scores during the match.
Registration is free.
Goals for Water is run in partnership by WaterAid and Netball Victoria. Great prizes are available for the highest fundraising teams, including customised Kukri netball dresses, sportswear from C2C Sport, hand relief products from Aveda, and a clinic with Liz Watson!
Include your postal address when signing up and we’ll send you a pledge book to receive donations. If you need more, you can download a pledge booklet here.

I love the fact that by scoring goals in your netball match, you and your teammates can raise money to help people in some of the world’s poorest communities have access to safe, clean water – that is something we can all be proud of within our netball community.— Liz Watson, Melbourne Vixens player and WaterAid Ambassador
14 year old Dadi feels lucky because her school has safe water and toilets, and that means more time doing the things she loves like playing netball with her friends.
"After school I came home to fetch water for our dinner. Some afternoons I collect shells from the nearby mangroves for our dinner."
Dadi is proud that she never has to miss school and dreams of one day looking after her parents.
Just a few years ago life was very different. The women and children in Martha’s village would collect dirty water from a distant location that would often make them sick.
After establishing a Water Committee and working with WaterAid the community now have access to clean water via a hand pump that is easy to maintain and sustain.
“It’s a lucky generation, the generation of my children and my grandchildren are lucky to get clean water so close and easily. I am happy for them.”
During the dry season the tank in Carlinda’s village is often empty. As a result, Carlinda must travel long distances to collect water where she is at risk to poisonous snakes and wild animals.
The water she collects is dirty and often makes her children sick with diarrhoea. One of Carlinda’s five children has died due to diarrhoea caused by unsafe water.
Carlinda’s village has established a Water Committee and is working with WaterAid to improve access to safe water in her community.
“Having …clean water that is close will help reduce the diarrhoea and disease.”
