By working towards basic water, sanitation and hygiene services by 2030

We are working towards basic water, sanitation and hygiene services for everyone by 2030. We are doing this by working with service providers, local government, and non-governmental and academic organisations. We develop partnerships and goals for our work through learning alliances. These support the development of understanding in the WASH service delivery system and provide the ability to develop and execute shared action agendas.

With a plan backed by government 

The agenda we have shaped together has resulted in a long term district WASH master plan. The plan, backed by a resource mobilisation strategy for the master plan implementation was endorsed by the district cabinets in 2021. The document provides the vision and strategy for steps to take to meet the 2030 targets. The work now focuses on the delivery of these plans. A significant step forward.
