WASH

wash

The organisation is intensively working on water, sanitation and hygiene issues in its operational area. The overall goal of the WASH is to improve the health and socio-economic well-being of communities by reducing the incidence of water and sanitation-related diseases through sustainable safe water, sanitation, and hygiene practices.

The organization will achieve this goal through four objectives:

  • Increase access to sustainable, safe water and environmental sanitation for poor and vulnerable communities
  • Reduce the prevalence of WASH-related diseases, including trachoma, Guinea worm, and diarrheal diseases, through the promotion of personal hygiene and environmental practices
  • Increase sustainability by promoting integrated water resources management at the local level, with a focus on maintaining the quantity and quality of drinking water
  • Foster a new model of partnership and institutional synergy to ensure technical excellence, programmatic innovation, and long-term financial, social, and environmental sustainability in water management that can be replicated elsewhere

Communities that are most vulnerable and have the least access to water and sanitation are chosen to receive WASH interventions. The organisation also works with community leaders to ascertain that residents are committed to helping to construct and maintain WASH facilities.
