WASH – F (Securing the Future of Children with Portable Water and Sanitary Facilities)

WASH – F Project aims to provide access to safe water and sanitary facilities in three project communities (Rigachukun, Ramai and Juji village) in Kaduna State, Northern Nigeria thereby securing the future of children with portable water and sanitary facilities. This project is designed to drill a total of nine (12) manual hand pumped bore holes and (3) VIP latrines for the communities with 12 months (September, 2020 – August, 2021)

THE PROBLEM

Our research findings showed that lack of clean and portable drinking water has major effects on child education. Their only water source is the stream which is diseased, worm infested and located at a far distance to their residents. During the dry season, there is always shortage of water; where there is, residents of the community would have to wake up as early as 2am to fetch water from the same source cattle drink from. They would have trek distance repeatedly to get enough water for the household. Since children and youth are most affected in this routine, the performance of students in school is affected. In Juji community, only one public school exists in the area with no toilet facility and portable water for the large population of pupils/teachers. Teachers approach neighboring residents to ease themselves when pressed, while the pupils (male & female) engage in open defecation in nearby bushes and uncompleted buildings.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES

• To provide portable water and sanitary facilities in the communities

• To encourage community health and environmental sanitation

• To create awareness as well as educate the local on safe hygiene practices

PROJECT GOALS

We hope to achieve the following goals on the completion of this project:

• Increase access to sustainable, safe drinking water and environmental sanitation for the vulnerable community

• Promote integrated water resource management at the local level, with a focus on maintaining the quantity and quality of drinking water

• Reduce prevalence of WASH-related diseases like Guinea worm, Cholera, Typhoid, and Diarrheal

• Improve sanitation and hygiene practices in targeted communities

• Improve performance of children in schools
