Water and Sanitation Program in Ethiopia

$4,130 $0
Raised Remaining


The project includes six interrelated water and sanitation activities that provide a safe supply of water for good sanitation and hygiene. It works in partnership with nine organizations.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Health indicators show that Ethiopia has serious problems with healthcare and disease prevention. Water and sanitation-related diseases, particularly diarrhea, are among the top three causes of death in the country after malaria and HIV/AIDS. Only 12% of the rural population has access to safe drinking water and 7% to basic sanitation. Rural communities are the main beneficiaries of this program. The total number of beneficiaries is 117,450.

How will this project solve this problem?

The main project activities are construction of machine-drilled and hand-dug wells, spring capping structures, ventilated and improved latrines and management of water for good hygiene and sanitation.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project reduces the incidence of water- and sanitation-related diseases. Through a sustainable and safe water, sanitation and hygiene project, we improve the lives of entire communities.
