Water, Hygiene and Sanitation

Water, Hygiene and Sanitation

The provision of safe drinking water in homes and the disposal of excreta, waste as well as the practice of sound hygiene and sanitation are very important in reducing the burden of diseases. Such diseases, which are often water borne, have a very negative health impact particularly on children and already sick people, as many die of diarrhea, typhoid, and other related diseases. Our activities are therefore geared towards reducing the incidence of these diseases through the following activities:

   Carry out programs to ensure water quality improvement by:

  •  Promoting point of use water treatment technologies in communities and in households from diverse water sources

  • Trainings on household water treatment techniques. Ensure access to adequate sanitation facilities by:

  •  Providing technical support for the construction of sanitary latrines in schools and communities.

  •  Carry out technical support for Community-Led Total Sanitation activities in collaboration with other stakeholders. Promote hygiene education by:

  • Carrying out and supporting the teaching of personal hygiene through the provision of activity-based teaching manuals, learning/game materials and demonstration models.

  •  Supporting National hygiene programs which involve the promotion of hand washing and other basic hygienic measures in communities and through the media.

  • Carrying out other health promotion activities, to increase awareness about the importance of clean water, water conservation, and environmental preservation.
