To demonstrate provision of sustainable safe water supply and sanitation model to help contribute to the reduction of mortality and morbidity among women and children in Districts of Nawabshah and Khairpur Mirs SAFWCO in collaboration with PCRWR at the federal level, and Local Government Departments at the provincial level, will implement activities in two districts, Nawabshah and Khairpur Mirs. The theme of this agreement is based on water quality and the provision of alternative safe water supply options ; improvement of water quality and the promotion of appropriate technologies to help provide safe water supply options for affected target communities of Sindh. Installing chlorination/treatment plants and Arsenic/POPs Removal Technologies (ART) at Tehsil/Taluka HQs and schools, respectively, will help promote such themes and raise awareness among effected communities, politicians and administrators. Awareness in schools and among students is also important as students are seen as effective change agents in their communities around the country. The co-operation between UNICEF, UNDP/Small Grant Programme (SGP), PCRWR and LG will include activities such as the promotion of improved sanitation facilities and capacity development of the government and community to participate in and lead the local management of services provided.
