Some of Project WET’s newest international partners in 2018 implemented engaging programs that fight poverty, address stigma and improve solid waste management, all while using Project WET activities and methods:
- In Kenya, the Giselle Foundation is working on an innovative program that combines water, sanitation and hygiene education with solid waste management and economic empowerment, improving the lives of the thousands of people who live in the Obunga slums on the edge of Lake Victoria, in Kisumu, Kenya.
- In Pakistan, for World Water Day, Rural Education and Economic Development Society (REEDS)conducted a total of 10 awareness-raising activities, encouraging participants to take action on an individual basis to save water and encourage water conservation in others. The REEDS team also launched a tree planting campaign with the goal of enhancing biodiversity. Later in the year, REEDS adopted an Interactive Theater approach to make their water stewardship programs more inclusive.
