Working with communities to identify areas of critical need in terms of nutrition, water, sanitation, and hygiene.

Ethiopia

Addis Ketema Water Point Extension

There is a water supply shortage in the community of Addis Ketema CarePoint, and in the nearby areas of Daka and Dato Kebeles. By providing a water extension in the area and constructing a water kiosk, community members will have easier access to clean water, which will contribute to increased health, hygiene, and sanitation for our beneficiaries and also the whole Daka and Dato communities.

Enat CarePoint Shower and Latrine

In the community of Enat CarePoint, there is a huge market, open everyday, that serves Hawassa and the surrounding cities. Although there is heavy foot traffic and it is densely populated, there are no toilet and shower facilities for people at and near the market to use. This project provides access to a toilet and shower, as well as creates job opportunities for guardians of children at the CarePoint. Additionally, it allows an opportunity to support the sanitation of the community and decreases the spreading of infectious disease in the area.
