Water sanitation and hygiene
Thematic Area of Intervention
Considering current problem of the country , our organization CCFRY focus on the most deprived and vulnerable population to provide access to shelters, food, drinking water and hygiene facilities and support to the education to uplift socio-economic conditions by reducing the risk of deterioration of livelihood status of the people. One of core areas of priorities is enlisted below;
Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Access to clean water, safe toilets and good hygiene practice are essential elements for healthy human lives. The concept of WASH was introduced in Nepal with the combination of three component-Water, sanitation and hygiene. These three components are complementary for each other and dealing with these issues in isolation does not produce the desired result. Even today, people residing in rural areas of Nepal do not have an access to safe or clean water source and safe toilets. They use open place for toilet which pollute the environment and spread various diseases. Such unhygienic practices deteriorate the health condition of people living in those areas.Further , for children under five, water- and sanitation-related diseases are one of the leading causes of death. Hence, it can be seen that WASH is an important issue to be considered.In the context of CCFRY ,our focus in WASH component will be;
- Health and hygiene education to the community and schools
- Support community for the access to clean water
- Support for safe sanitation
- Educate community about the maintaining of safety in collection and use of water.
