Postcards from the field is a way of sharing stories from the many people and places that are being supported by Water for Women. Through these stories, we hope to be able to share and celebrate some wonderful achievements from our CSOs, research organisations and their partners and the many people whose lives will be improved by their efforts.

Each year, we highlight a range of global awareness days that align with Water for Women's work and approaches that include our latest postcards. Our key campaigns from each year can be found below.

To view all of our postcards, see our Postcards Archive.
