Water, Sanitation in communities
Water is life and our water and sanitation projects are virtually the epicenter and premier activity of our community development work. The program focuses on improving and optimizing access to safe water, adequate sanitation and health among geographically remote communities in East, and Central Africa.

Protection of identified and naturally occurring water springs and construction of hand-dug wells fitted with hand pumps
Constructing VIP Toilets

Training & Awareness
Conducting training and awareness campaigns on personal hygiene, environmental hygiene and protection as well as sanitation.
Sustainable Water Harvesting and Wetland Utilization
The well-being of families is impossible without sustainable, equitable access to clean water, dignified sanitation and appropriate hygiene behaviors. Our water and sanitation projects are therefore the epicenter and premier activity of our community development work. As clean water is in the interest of all community members our water related projects represent an important entry point for other activities in new communities.

In this context Euro Water Project maintains a database on the prevailing social and scientific developments regarding reproductive health and HIV/ AIDs.
Working in Collaboration
Euro Water Project works with the government to carry out intensive training to the communities on topics such as the concept of HIV/ AIDS home-based care, symptoms of HIV/ AIDS, prevention of mother- to- child transmission, community mobilization, and nutrition for people living with HIV/ AIDs, among others.
Distribution of Sanitary Pads to School Girls
Management of menstruation can present substantial challenges to girls in low-income settings. Many girls in primary schools in rural areas skip school when their monthly menstrual cycle is in full swing. They are subjected to embarrassment and fear of teasing related to menstruation. This, together with menstrual pain and lack of effective materials for menstrual hygiene management, leads to school absenteeism, thus impeding their academic performance. Social studies in schools show that poverty and menstruation as the key factors associated with school attendance among girls.
