WATER AND SANITATION

The efficiency of any WASH program is centred on how relevant the project is to the needs of the community and the empowerment the intervention provides to increase community resilience against water, sanitation and hygiene vulnerability.Poor access to clean water and inadequate sanitation facilities increase disease frequencies, especially among children under the age of 5.

In most of the communities of our intervention:

There are insufficient water points within the community

People travel long distances in some instances about 6 kilometres to access safe water

Community members spend several hours at water points before accessing water

There are incidences of indiscriminate dumping of refuse

There are the prevalence of Open Defecation (OD)

Beneficiaries are unable to access the 15 litres per person per day in line with the SPHERE standard

The aforementioned rationale propelled JDPH in collaboration with her partners  to provide access to WASH services to contribute to ameliorating the sufferings of marginalized communities in North Eastern states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe.
