  • When Adeel took us back to the NEXUS conference in Bonn the other day,
    He mentioned that an important topic there was POVERTY ERADICATION
    Addressing the needs of the BOTTOM BILLION who lack water, food as well as energy security
  • This poorest segment in society is the main ‘ clientele’ of the Women for Water Partnership
    Their everyday reality looks like this
  • And this
    Or worse
  • We are a global network of women’s civil society organisations that work on sustainable development
    and poverty eradication.
    Basically what we do is seek out women’s civil society groups or women leadership in a community
    Empower them to take the lead in adressing the water situation in their communities
    Build a partnership of relevant actors around their initiative
    JOINTLY develop the project around the women’s case
    Look for funds to implement.
  • An important role of the women’s group is to engage their community
    To get their consent and contributions
    And to ensure their commitment to pay for the water services later on
  • A major challenge is to engage the authorities
    They are the key partner
    In fact, they should be in the lead.
    But in many cases, they have the capacity nor the means.
    So the partnership is initiated through the women’s civil society group
    Left: Mayor of Mweteni in the ‘ Town Hall’: 1 room with an earthen floor, some shelves on the wall and no windows.
    Mweten has 5 subvillages with a total population of 10.000+
    Right: Disrtict Water Enginee working on the gravity schemes at the premises of the Tegemeo Women Group
  • For a local civil society group like the Tegemeo being part of the Women for Water Partnership is key to their success.
    Living in a traditional environment where women have no access to or voice in decision making, the international backing and the project money brought through WfWP gives them a voice and the acknowledgement as an equal partner.
