WASH & CLIMATE CHANGE
Disability Inclusive WASH:
This program area is intended to bring youth and children with disability on board in matters of WASH since they face significant barriers to accessing water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) which are often times left silent.
WASH in Schools:
This program area is intended to address WASH barriers and challenges that most school children (Boys and Girls) face that render them to missing school, dropping out, or even lose their self-esteem when water and sanitation facilities and services in schools are either not available, inaccessible, or inappropriate. Such facilities and services may include but not limited to; WASH information, menstrual health and hygiene; and hand washing.
Gender Equality and Climatic Change:
We empower women, girls, youth and People with disabilities to have a voice and a role in decision-making on climate change-related issues for sustainable development and greater gender equality.
WASH in Fishing Communities:
This Program area is geared towards enhancing WASH services among the usually underserved and marginalized fishing communities through monitoring/ Learning and evaluation to arrive at behavior-centered and context LLA appropriate solutions. Evidence has it that people living in fishing communities who happen to also have a high burden of preventable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) related diseases are often been neglected in research and policy due to their geographical locations. Yet they are highly affected by poor sanitation infrastructural designs and constructions, difficult sanitation context and social-cultural norms, which in turn affect the environmental ecosystem. As such, fishing communities are with constrained access to WASH services also addressed in here.
This program area is focused addressing Climate change issues where climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns driven by both natural and human activities. We employ the Locally Led Adaptations (LLA) to address and reduce climatic change impacts to the most vulnerable and marginalized populations like women, girls, youth and children. We specifically work with communities to reduce; global warming which have also come about with Agricultural and ecological droughts, Carbon-dioxide emission rises, fierce Storms, unpredictable rainfall and sunshine, sea-level rise bringing about climatic change refugees, water scarcity, lower food production and health issues.
