Improved sanitation in more than 1,500 villages

1500 villagesThe standard of living for thousands for people in districts of  Thyolo, Chiradzulu, Blantyre and Chikhwawa district are set to improve for the better as DAPP Malawi in partnership with PLAN and UNICEF is mobilising communities  to make and use latrines.
DAPP Malawi works to compliment government efforts to improve people’s livelihoods
In 2015, DAPP Child Aid project worked with 285 villages in Chikhwawa district reaching 26,665 beneficiary families directly and 128,007 people indirectly while in Thyolo and Chiradzulu districts; the project reached 225,000 people in 700 villages. In October 2015 another 400 villages were included and the reach was extended to Blantyre rural also.

Country Director for DAPP Malawi Lisbeth Thomsen says the project is  unique in that the project has taken multi-sectoral and holistic approach through integrating all WASH components instead of focusing on individual elements, thus creating a decisive difference to existing projects in that it is far more comprehensive and overcomes the paradigm of concentrating purely on construction of WASH facilities or on capacity building and find them unused after a short time as the maintenance can’t be done by local people.
