Our key strategies

The Gaya-Madhubani project includes piped water supply, water quality monitoring, Social Art for Behaviour Change activities, and active measures towards making services sustainable, by establishing entrepreneurial models. The project supports district and state administrations to promote community-managed models through training and capacity building. In addition, this project will support governmental stakeholders in assessing and improving water-quality labs. The goal of the Gaya and Madhubani project is to have an impact on critical WASH behaviours that contribute to poor health outcomes, particularly for children, adolescent girls, and women.

A·B·C for Sustainability

The proposed project will be implemented using our A•B•C for Sustainability Approach:

Access
- Increase access to safe, sustainable, inclusive and gender-sensitive water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in communities, including in schools, health centers and public places and build capacities of institutions to provide and manage them.

Behaviour Change
- Improve WASH behaviours such as handwashing with soap, safe disposal of child faeces and menstrual hygiene management, promoted and sustained through Social Art for Behaviour Change and by building capacity of Leaders of Change.

Capital
- Ensure access to WASH services through women-led market-based livelihood and entrepreneurial models.
