Our programmes

The WASH Alliance International executes large-scale WASH programmes for international donors and governments. At the same time the eight Country Alliances work for local clients, including the private sector and embassies. Read more about our different programmes below.

“Sustainable WASH for All - 2011 – 2015”

Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The “Sustainable WASH for All” programme was part of the MFS II facility of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Under this programme, we supported civil society organizations in 8 countries in Africa and Asia in implementing programs that improve sustainable access to and use of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. During the five year period, the programme achieved to provide access to an additional 1 million people with improved sanitation facilities and an additional 500,000 people with improved drinking water facilities, mostly in rural areas, through country programme partners and multi-stakeholder platforms. Other target groups were the country programme partners and public and private stakeholders, whose capacities were enhanced to build up a strong WASH market and public sector.

“Accelerating Sustainable WASH – 2016”

Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Based on the success of the “Sustainable WASH for All” programme from 2011 to 2015, this year we received funding from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs to continue our collaboration and taking our work to the next level of acceleration. The grant by the Dutch government is used to diversify our funding base and become internationally recognised, to continue learning and innovating together on WASH sector development and acceleration and at the same time to provide 160.000 people with sanitation and 140.000 with water in 2016.
