Water & Sanitation

Goal: Contribute to improved WASH Management

According to World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that, in developing countries, 75% of all illnesses and 80% of child mortality cases are associated with unsafe disposal of excrement, poor hygiene, and water supplies that are inadequate in quantity or quality.

YES is concentrating on overcoming some of the more cheap and practical barriers to achieving sanitation coverage. First communities need to understand the health consequences of unsafe or no sanitation, the principal barrier that need to be erected to break the fecal oral cycle are generally hand washing at critical times with clean running water and soap (eg after defecation and before eating) and safe disposal of all human feaces.

Our intervention are focused on five areas hygiene (health education and encouragement of specific behaviours such as hand washing with soap) sanitation education and counselling, water supply and management, waste management, and multiple intervention hygiene, sanitation, and water elements.
