One of the most common causes of death in the developing world is drinking dirty and diseased water. We take clean water for granted and can access it freely at the turn of a tap; for those less fortunate than us it can be a matter of life and death.
We will launch a program to help and marginalised communities establish sustainable water supplies and sanitation services. We have also influenced government policy-makers to serve the interests of vulnerable people.
Our aims and objectives:
- Innovative approaches
- Participatory methods
- Women and other vulnerable groups
- Hygiene promotion
- Monitoring and evaluation
- What we will have
- Water, sanitation and hygiene in schools
- Rainwater harvesting
- Water services for poor urban communities
- Community-led total sanitation in rural areas
- Improved urban sanitation through ‘component sharing’ model
