We work to create access to essential services (water, sanitation and waste) for disadvantaged populations. We implement projects relating to access to essential services, conduct training to improve and manage services, training and awareness-raising actions among local populations with respect to health and hygiene. We are involved in lobbying and advocating for people’s right to clean drinking water, sanitation, hygiene and safe disposal of waste. Our interventions include:
- Conservation of rain water by rain water harvesting structures to address the acute drinking water problem..
- Community Led Total sanitation needs to achieve 100 % ODF Villages.
- School based WASH programs
- Behaviour change interventions for improved hygiene and sanitation practices particularly hand washing, water quality and ODF.
- We have developed a comprehensive well articulated IEC/BCC strategy.
- Programmatic approach on WASH by capacitating the partner NGOs on rights based approach and lobbying and advocacy skills for joint implementation of the programme.
