Equality

WOOSH (Water Out of Safe Holder) takes a life cycle approach to sanitation and hygiene programming. All humans experience different phases in their own life cycle, from infancy, through puberty, parenthood, illness and old age.

The sanitation and hygiene needs for everyone, at all times, need to be considered if programmes and policies are to be equitable for all. For the disabled, relatively small adjustments to water and sanitation services can ensure that their needs are not overlooked, improving the dignity, health, and overall quality of life of those already disadvantaged.

In terms of service access and use, significant inequalities remain between rural and urban areas, marginalized and excluded groups, and the most vulnerable people. Action research, capacity building and political advocacy by WOOSH (Water Out of Safe Holder) and other Women based organizations and partnerships will help to improve economic and social living conditions.

WOOSH (Water Out of Safe Holder) engages actively in emerging initiatives linked to water supply, technological innovation, handwashing, menstrual hygiene management, equal and universal access, rural and urban sanitation, household and institutional, demand and supply, household financing mechanisms, safe waste disposal and re-use, and strategic planning and evaluation.

WOOSH (Water Out of Safe Holder) is working to contribute meaningfully to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

With our country partners and other organizations, including the local participation, WSSCC also focuses on Rapid Action Learning (RAL), capacity building support for people in most affected communities on sustainable and inclusive sanitation, policy support and on Menstrual Health and Hygiene.
