The UK Government through Department for International Development (DFID) is providing GBP 33 million (around US$ 51 million) in 2012-2016 to support the rural water, sanitation and hygiene) sector in 30 districts and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) is providing a further CHF 5.8 million (around US$4.2 million) in 3 districts of 5 provinces of Zimbabwe (Matabeleland North, Matabeleland South, Masvingo, Midlands and Mashonaland West). The Rural WASH Programme (RWP) is managed by UNICEF and will provide equitable and sustainable access of safe drinking water to 1,726,000 people ; and of these 1,272,000 will enjoy improved sanitation. Sanitation facilities will be improved at 1,660 schools and hygiene practices will be improved amongst the rural population benefitting 2,595,000 rural people by 2015 (Millennium Development Goals (MDG) target date). All thirty-three districts currently have low (Water and Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) access and are prone to cholera. UNICEF is implementing the RWP as part of its Country Programme of Cooperation in Zimbabwe and in partnership with ten Implementing Partners (IPs) some of whom gained prior WASH delivery experience in Zimbabwe as a result of the Protracted Relief Programme II (PRP II) that DFID and other Development Partners funded in 2008-2012 (US$ 135 million). The private sector is also being encouraged to engage.
