data4WASH simply aims to bring clean water closer to those who need it. Clearly, water is right and no one should be marginalized in accessing WASH and other related
sustainable solutions.
The petition tools provided via this portal will help reach individuals, communities and groups that matter in the WASH sector. We believe that by amplifying voices together
we can help eliminate powerlessness thereby bringing solutions where they are most desired.
The data4WASH petition page is an easy-to-use platform which includes the questions and how to make submissions.

Accurate information/research before you create your petition
A petition should begin with a request, followed by well-researched reasons for making
the request. Each petition should provide a description of relevant circumstances and
links to documentation or facts that support that description. Importantly, your petition
should contain information that suggests its request is feasible.

Clear communication
Don’t clutter your petition with background or requests that have no essential
connection with the main message. Proofread your petition carefully. Make sure it:
describes the relevant circumstances
suggests what is needed, and
explains why it is needed.

Be clear and concise with your message
What’s something you wish were different and that you actually could effect with
enough pressure?

Data for Wash

Your experiences, emotions, and intuition are a better
barometer than a lot of people give them credit. If you
feel something is unjust and actionable, there’s a good
chance others would agree with you.
Once you’ve created your petition, it’s off to the races to
gather signatures. Share with your network and
encourage others to sign and share.

Turning that idea into action really is as easy as 1, 2, 3 with data4WASH Petitions! Here
are the steps:
1. Start: Enter the basic information about the campaign — what do you want, who are
you asking, and why?
2. Launch: Check out a preview of your petition, edit anything you’d like to change,
and make it live for people to sign.
3. Share: You’re ready to roll. Now, get the word out — your petition won’t sign itself!
