With a completely Non-Traditional Approach in project delivery, we feel internally satisfied anytime we find the smile on the innocent faces of children whose real needs are met through our action.
Active in northern region
The Ghana WASH Alliance (GWA) is active in the northern region of Ghana. We are proud to be part of the bigger DWA family, which activities directly touch the hearts of vulnerable and excluded people. With a completely non-traditional Approach in project delivery, we feel internally satisfied anytime we find the smile on the innocent faces of children whose real needs are met through our action.
We have developed substantial expertise in Community Mobilization and Trainings including School WASH. We believe that with Education and Training, we will be able to change attitudes. And once attitudes change, it will not only be sustainable but it will be effective for any community development initiative.
The focus within our program in Ghana is to change attitudes within our partner communities and schools with innovative community WASH interventions. You can think of Community Volunteerism, Education, Sanitation Credit and the development of sanitation markets. Besides this, we aim to support schools with Water and Latrine facilities to improve hygiene practices among the children.
Sustainability lies at the heart of our work. For us, sustainability is the situation where we achieve progressive reduction in foreign donor inflow without compromising the quality standards of our services and products. This will be in partnership with communities that take the lead in decision-making and also mobilize to carry out such decisions with cheerful hearts.
