Right Path’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) interventions are geared towards long-term prevention and control of WASH-related- illnesses while improving health, reducing poverty as well as responding to community emergencies and outbreaks.
Access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene are complexly linked and vital necessities for communities to thrive physically, mentally, economically, socially, and spiritually. With no access to clean, reliable, and safe water, communities are deprived of good health and nutrition, socio-economic development, and healthy ecosystems.
Our WASH program is forthright: we advocate for clean, reliable, and safe water, WASH-related infrastructure such as boreholes, latrines for our target communities as well as sensitize school-going children and communities on the consumption of clean water as well as health and survival behaviors like handwashing.Read More
Why Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene
World-over, about 663 million people do not have access to clean water. Of these, 801,000 children under 5 years die annually from contaminated water. Additionally, one child dies every 21 seconds from water-related illness. Also, about 40% of the world’s population suffers from water scarcity and it has been observed that women spend over 40 billion hours walking to water sources.
