Access to WASH services improves living conditions in Diaso community

After thorough research and observation, we noticed that there were a lot of schools and communities within our Diaso Area Programme without access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, and as a development organisation, it is our responsibility to ensure that the most vulnerable children, families, schools and communities have access to these essential services. For this cause, the WASH for Improved Child Well-being Project was birthed by World Vision and with funding from PM International.

In this video, schoolchildren recount devastating experiences due to the lack of improved toilet facilities in their school. Children also share experiences of the risk the problem poses to their lives. We also listen to women as they share awful experiences having to do with unsafe water sources being far from their reach, amongst other challenges.

It brings us joy and fulfilment to see the project yielding desired results and knowing that schoolchildren, women, men and every other person within our Diaso Area programme have improved health, sanitation and doorstep borehole systems that will improve their living conditions.
