Water, Sanitation & Hygiene


Globally, over 2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation and an estimated 740 million people do not have access to an improved water source.

Although, access to safe, clean drinking water and sanitation is a basic human right, each year 1.4 million children die from diarrhoea caused by unclean water and poor sanitation - that's one child every 20 seconds from an entirely preventable public health crisis.

While absolute scarcity of safe water and sanitation is an issue, a critical constraint is inequitable and unjust distribution. At SNV we strive for access to sustainable basic services for all.

In 2014, 2.72 million people gained access to improved water, sanitation & hygiene through SNV initiatives.
