Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) capacity building and training programs to contractors’ workers, host communities and Local Governments.
Growing up in a clean and safe environment is everyone's right
Growing up in a clean and safe environment is everyone’s right. Access to clean water, basic toilets, and good hygiene practices keeps communities thriving.
Despite COVID-19 putting the spotlight on the importance of hand hygiene to prevent the spread of disease, about 8 million Ugandans lack access to safe water and 27 million do not have access to improved sanitation facilities (water.org, 2021). People living in rural areas, urban slums, and low-income countries are the most vulnerable and the most affected.
HPI promotes community-based handwashing, improved sanitation and access to safe drinking water through working in close collaboration with governments, the private sector, civil society organizations, and communities to improve systems and practices that fulfil people’s right to water and sanitation.
