SNV Ethiopia works together with local partners to provide technical expertise in three sectors: WASH, Energy and Agriculture, thereby contributing to finding local solutions to global challenges and sowing seeds of lasting change. The WASH program in Ethiopia contributes to extending access to Water and Sanitation and improving Hygiene with a focus on four WASH products:
• Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All in rural areas;
• Urban sanitation and hygiene for health and development (USHHD);
• Functionality of Rural Water Supply Services; and
• Urban water supply services in peri-urban and small towns.
SNV Ethiopia implements WASH programmes across two broad themes: 1) Rural WASH and 2) Urban and peri-urban WASH. For rural sanitation, the aim is to improve access to and encourage correct, consistent use of household sanitation and hygiene facilities to help Ethiopians gain sustainable access to improved, affordable sanitation and hygiene, and ensure that people live in open-defecation free (ODF) environment. For urban sanitation, SNVs work includes being a market facilitator to help Ethiopians to set–up services for human waste management through collaboration between the public, private sectors and communities. Current programmes include five WASH projects in different regions, zones and woredas, funded by various donors such as DFID, USAID, AFAS Foundation and Woord en Daad. There is also the six project entitled as WASH for Trachoma Elimination (WASHTRA) in five Zones of Oromia region. The position is contingent upon funding and expected to start in the first of April 2018 in partnership with Fred Hollows Foundation (FHF) with back donor Australian Aid.
