Sustainable Sanitation & Hygiene
Seeding Mercy Inc.’s comprehensive approach to ensure equitable and sustainable access to improved sanitation and hygiene by supporting the delivery of state-wide rural sanitation and hygiene services. We work in two countries in Africa and are posed to expand to the neighboring countries before 2020.
The approach addresses the need to innovate in hygiene promotion practice, linking this to the sanitation drive, but also embedding this practice in long-term health promotion. It also recognizes and addresses the need to have a long-term strategy to sustain sanitation and hygiene behavior change.
Globally, water coverage in rural areas is purported to have reached 84%, but some 30-40% of this infrastructure is no longer functioning as designed. Our Functionality of Rural Water Supply Services product addresses the challenge of deficient water service delivery.
