Improving the lives of people in Pakistan and Bangladesh
The South Asia WASH Results Programme (SAWRP) is a four-year programme that enables access to improved water facilities, sanitation and hygiene for 6.6 million people living in poor rural communities in Bangladesh and Pakistan. As a result of the programme:
We are now in the Sustainability Phase of the programme – where we are working with the 7 million people we reached in the delivery phase to ensure they continue to access and use their water and sanitation facilities and continue to practice positive hygiene behaviour, such as handwashing with soap, at key times to the end of the programme and beyond.
SAWRP is funded by the UK Government’s Department for International Development (DFID) under the multi-country DFID WASH Results Programme. SAWRP contributes towards the UK Government’s targets of reaching 60 million people with water, sanitation and hygiene initiatives to contribute towards the Millennium Development Goal 7 – 'Ensuring environmental sustainability' – by 2015.
