Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) has been and remains CARE’s core business. CARE has contributed enormously to the country’s efforts of improving access to safe water which now stands at 51% nationally, modest sanitation and good hygiene practices. In the last two decades, CARE reached approximately over 1 million people with WASH activities that targeted people in water scarce areas, displaced populations and areas of low sanitation coverage.
Over the years CARE’s WASH programming approach has evolved from just humanitarian intervention to a major driver and catalyst of improving households’ incomes through food production, livestock keeping and environmental hygiene. In order to increase on coverage, diversified approaches have been used including working directly with communities, institutional based WASH activities targeting public schools and health facilities, as well as through partnerships with other actors. In Dadaab Refugee camps, CIK has been implementing WASH in Dagahaley and Ifo 1 Camps.
