We cannot not speak about water without talking about Hygiene and sanitation; all these terms are taken in the same package. You cannot be sure that you are supporting someone getting out of vulnerable life, without considering an issue of clean water, hygiene and sanitation especially in rural communities. So, what we do is to make sure that our beneficiaries have access to adequate WASH infrastructures like clean water, improved latrines and get frequently education to hygiene.
