(Programme concluded - the Foundation no longer supports this programme)
Implemented by the partner Inter Aide, the aim of this project is to improve the hygiene practices and increase the access to safe water and sanitation in Nampula Province - especially in Nacala-a-Velha and Memba District -, while ensuring the sustainability of water facilities and expanding the water points maintenance services to 2 additional Districts: Monapo and Mossuril.
Key Achievements Of Inter Aide
On top of the agenda in 2016 was providing better lavatories for villagers: more than 1,000 families from 12 villages have access to new and improved latrines. What’s more, over 2,000 adults completed their training on adequate hygiene practices, and nearly 800 children were educated on these issues – important for reducing rates of diarrhoea. In the districts of Nacala-a-Velha, Monapo and Memba, committees are taking responsibility for managing and maintaining their water points. They can now repair pumps and instigate rules of use. Ultimately, the project aims to provide 15,000 beneficiaries with safe water and functioning latrines.
