Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)
Globally, 660 million people do not have access to safe drinking-water sources and more than 2.4 billion people do not have access to improved sanitation (WHO/UNICEF JMP 2015). In Malawi, Guinea, Nigeria, Mozambique, Kenya and
Bangladesh we are recognised for delivering high quality, inclusive and sustainable WASH programmes.
We ensure that local organisations and communities are engaged at every stage of the project, and for working through established local structures, to ensure our work is contextually relevant. We train community members in community-based management of water points, so that the communities themselves can provide the technical skills and mobilise maintenance funds to ensure the sustainability of WASH infrastructure.
