Long lasting Livelihood
Together, women are learning to earn lasting livelihoods by producing household toilets and other life-saving necessities whilst also learning how to help lead entire regions towards realizing the vision of WASH for all.
A Proven Model
Case studies have demonstrated that women, when enabled to produce and sell their own WASH provisions, can demonstrate tremendous success in their ventures, triggering community demand for improved WASH through their entrepreneurial drive.
In Uttarakhand, India, GIWA’s Women for WASH Programme is launching in some of the mountainous state’s most disadvantaged areas.
Here, women are coming together as never before to not only make an income, but to lead the way towards great and lasting change. Together, through their drive and effort, they will take their messages, and their wares and services, from community to community, home to home and heart to heart, until their local Revolution against pollution, hardship and disease has been won.
