Who we are



The WASH SDG programme focuses on urban sanitation particularly on improving the safe sanitation service chain. Funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Trade & Development Cooperation (DGIS), the programme aims to support access to sanitation services and improve safe hygiene practices in Arusha City and Shinyanga Municipality, Tanzania (2017-2022).


To achieve this, the programme looks into three different areas; improving behaviour change interventions leading to increased demand for improved WASH facilities and practices, improving WASH services provision leading to increased availability and affordability of WASH products and services which contributes to sustainable and equitable access to WASH, and strengthening of the WASH governance leading to governments enabling the efficient and effective delivery of inclusive and sustainable services which also contributes to sustainable and equitable access to WASH.
