Rwandan Women-Led Water Project Progress Report

Thanks to your generosity, Global Water Challenge and women for water are able to support Global Grassroots’ work to advance gender equity in Rwanda. Together, we are providing clean water access and business training to community members in the Jali Sector. Global Grassroots is also mobilizing women-led water ventures to transform their community through clean water access, while addressing violence, equity, and now COVID-19.

In recent months, Global Grassroots has adapted their long-term goals to respond to the immediate need for publicly available water for handwashing and sanitation. Through their women-led venture teams, Global Grassroots is installing ten temporary handwashing stations near water points and distributing soap-making supplies to over 1,500 people. Additionally, each venture team will conduct hygiene training on handwashing and COVID-19 prevention to keep community members safe and healthy.

Follow women for water’s journey to empower women and girls across 10,000 communities with access to WASH and life skills programs by 2030 on InstagramTwitter, and Facebook! You can also see Global Grassroots’ impact here.
