WASH and Community Health


  • Promoting water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH): EDA has an initiative to alleviate WASH-related problems in poor communities. We promote hygiene and sanitation education and establish community and school-based WASH facilities. In doing so, EDA has been able to increase access to WASH services for 120,000 community members and school children. Wealso train people on how to generate income while caring for the environment by developing sustainable livelihoods in dry waste management, composting, and generating alternative and renewable energy, such as biogas, from waste materials. This is based on the principle of urban trash to cash.what we do WASH health 1
