BUILDING CAPACITY TO MANAGE WASH INTERVENTIONS AT THE LOCAL LEVEL

A real commitment to providing access to safe water and sanitation and improved hygiene.

HIJRA's programmes in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) focus on increasing access to water, sanitation and hygiene services, while building the capacity to manage WASH interventions at the local level.

Our programmes in Somalia and Uganda directly benefits over 400,000 community members comprised of refugees, Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and other vulnerable host community.

Water and sanitation-related diseases, such as diarrhea and malaria, remain the leading cause of death among children under age five. This is primarily due to a high proportion of non-functioning water supply facilities, poor access to sanitation and low adoption rates of positive hygiene practices.

The overall goal of our programmes achieve reductions in water and sanitation-related illnesses within the communities we serve in Somalia and Uganda by:

 - Increasing access to safe water
 - Improving sanitation
 - Improving hygiene behaviour
 - Training and mobilizing communitywater and sanitation (WASH) committees
