Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Response to Support Drought-Affected Communities in Ethiopia

Ethiopie

Titre : Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Response to Support Drought-Affected Communities in Ethiopia

Pays : Ethiopie

N° projet : ETH921

Durée : Duration 01.04.2017 to 31.03.2018

Descriptif
The proposed action of the consortium CARE-Action Against Hunger will improve access to, and use of, safe drinking water, improved sanitation and adoption of safe hygiene practices in drought-affected communities in Borena Zone of Oromia Region in Ethiopia. This will be achieved through an integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) approach that is built on lessons learned and good practices : 1 – Improved access to safe drinking water will be achieved through water point rehabilitation/construction ; rehabilitation/construction of rain water harvesting schemes in schools and health facilities ; strengthening of Water Management Committees (WASHCO) ; 2 – Enhanced access to improved sanitation and hygiene will be achieved through school latrines rehabilitation/construction ; hygiene promotion in schools (using Children’s Hygiene And Sanitation Training – CHAST) ; and hygiene promotion in health facilities. This two-pronged approach provides life-saving support to drought-affected communities in Borena Zone while also contributing to reduce their vulnerability to water insecurity and water-borne diseases in a sustainable manner.

Objectifs
To reduce the morbidity and mortality among drought-affected populations in Borena zone through an integrated water, sanitation and hygiene response. Improve access to, and use of, safe drinking water, improved sanitation and adoption of safe hygiene practices in drought-affected communities in Borena zone.

Résultats attendus
ER 1 : Improved access to safe drinking water through rehabilitation/construction of water schemes and capacity building.
ER 2 : Enhanced access to improved sanitation and hygiene through the rehabilitation/construction of improved sanitation facilities and targeted hygiene promotion activities.

Groupes cibles : The total beneficiaries are 24,155. This number is comprised of all people living in the area where the rehabilitation/construction of the 17 water points will take place and who will benefit from hygiene promotion. All other beneficiaries (school students or beneficiaries from health institutions) are not included in this total as they might already be part of the 24,155 beneficiaries, which would bring to double-counting. By adding all potential beneficiaries the action could reach a total of 40,355 as following : – 24,155 people for water system rehabilitation/construction (CARE and Action Against Hunger (AAH)) – 12,000 people from RWH system in 4 schools and 4 health facilities (AAH) – 4,200 people for the hygiene education in 6 health centers (AAH) and latrine construction in 3 schools (CARE)
