WATER AND SANITATION projects supported




WaterSHED stands for ‘Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Enterprise Development’. The Cambodia-based NGO originated as a program of the University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health. It has been operating as an independent organisation since 2011. Its mission is to engage local enterprises and government in the development of sustainable market-based approaches to bring effective and affordable water and sanitation products and services to market in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos.

The Foundation started supporting WaterSHED in 2013 with a grant of £100,000 to promote their “Hands-Off” sanitation marketing programme in Cambodia over a one-year period. The “Hands-Off” approach supportslocal enterprises to profitably sell sanitation products and services that households want and can afford. To date, the programme facilitated the sale of more than 100,000 household latrines, with 197 village communities reaching 100% latrine coverage and the average household investing $38 in new low-cost latrines. Towards the end of 2014, the Foundation awarded WaterSHED a second grant of £180,000 to extend the programme for a further three years.
