WSUP

WaterAid

WSUP – Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor – was established in 2005 as a partnership that brings together the resources and expertise of business, charity and academia to deliver water and sanitation services to the poorest people in cities. WSUP’s model works with local water utility companies and municipalities to improve their WASH conditions, promote good hygiene and raise the health and environmental standards of communities in hard-to-reach slums in six countries (Bangladesh, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Zambia).

In 2012 the Foundation offered WSUP a grant of £150,000 to be used over a three year period to extend their WASH work in Mollar Basti and Kallyanpur slums in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Within this project WSUP will support communities to construct and maintain 14 communal water points connected to mains utilities providing 5,500 people with access to clean safe water. They will also construct 33 communal latrines, and promote hygiene education in schools reaching 21,000 students. An investment scheme will be implemented to facilitate maintenance and improvement of infrastructure over the longer-term, and the project will be monitored and evaluated to assess the effectiveness of the approach for future replication.
