During this implementation phase of the programme, water and sanitation facilities were constructed in rural and semi-urban locations and good hygiene practices were promoted.
The programme continued for two more years with a strong focus on sustainability. The activities in this outcome phase aimed at promoting, supporting and monitoring the sustainability of WASH outcomes which were included in the original programme design.
Water indicator: Beneficiaries use SWIFT water points.
Sanitation indicator: Beneficiaries use latrines up to SWIFT standards.
Hygiene indicator 1: Beneficiaries can name at least 3 key moments for hand washing.
Hygiene indicator 2: A hand washing station is available near the latrine.
Hygiene indicator 3: Beneficiaries can show at least 3 correct hand washing actions.
Often, it was necessary to submit copies of the water law to the authorities for them to realise that it is their duty to guarantee people’s constitutional right to water and sanitation.Dr Josué Ibulungu Programme coordinator
At the start of the project, stakeholder buy-in was not a sure thing. But we were able to convince local authorities and catch up regularly with the Provincial Health Division to demand that health zones become more involved in the project, because their participation is essential for community awareness campaigns to work.David MarquesProgramme Manager
