USAID's Water and Sanitation Project Aims to Double Rural Beneficiaries
USAID's water and sanitation project is working to double the number of rural beneficiaries this year, bringing the total during the three-year project to 50,000 people. Building on its successful model of community commitment and government involvement, the project brings clean water and sanitation facilities to some of the most remote communities in two districts. By the end of September 2011, 55% of these rural residents will have access to clean water, many for the first time in their lives. More than a third will have sanitary latrines and hand washing stations, too. Access to clean water and sanitation facilities will bring down the very high rates of water-borne diseases, reducing child mortality rates and improving lives.
