PbR and SNV in WASH

SNV is one of the three suppliers of DFID’s WASH Results Programme. Working with governments and local partners in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nepal, Tanzania, Uganda, Mozambique, South Sudan and Zambia, SNV implemented its rural sanitation approach - Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All (SSH4A) with UKAID funding. In the last six years (2014-2019), over 4.2 million people gained (new) access to sanitation and almost 2 million people gained access to a handwashing facility with soap.

SNV's rural sanitation approach contributed to ending open defecation, increased use of safely managed, functional and private toilets, and increased access to handwashing with soap facilities. To realise area-wide access to sanitation and contribute to the SDG's goal to leave no-one behind, SSH4A WASH Results Programme implementation was focused on households living in poverty, female-led households and households with people with disability.
