Girls, Women & Water: Ensuring Gender Equity through WASH

Commitment by

World Vision

In 2011, World Vision and its founding partners committed to increasing sustainable access to safe water, adequate sanitation, and hygiene solutions for 6.6 million people across ten African countries through the expansion of community water development programs. More specifically, the project will drill and rehabilitate wells, install pumps, develop and train community WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) committees, and build water collection as well as sanitation systems for schools. This six-year commitment will focus on 210 World Vision area development programs in 10 African countries and eventually impact 8.6 million people (6.6 million directly and 2 million more indirectly).
