Titre : Rainwater harvesting for improving WASH and raising environmental awareness (Ethiopia)

Pays/Région : Ethiopie

Date 01-Apr-2015 // 30-Mar-2016

Available data on WASH service in schools indicates that only 32.5% schools have access to safe water supply (MoH and UNICEF-WHO JMP (2012). The problems in our project area is even by far more serious because of the limited number and type of water sources, forcing inhabitants walk long distance to fetch water. Data from the district office and interview made with the inhabitants indicates, most of the people have to walk two hours on an average to fetch water from river. Besides that, there is rather inadequate WASH facilities for the school and community, and that is made worse with poor sanitation and hygiene practices. The region is semi-arid, need to trigger climate resilience in young minds.

The project focuses on water for multiple uses particularly small-scale irrigation and sanitation and hygiene facilities to Alduba School & the neighbouring community. Engaging the young and adults (parents-teacher association) in a community would create ownership of the issues needing resolution and a sense of empowerment.
