Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Project
Unsafe water was identified as a significant issue in the Tungi ward by several sources, such as the health coordinator and other local leaders. For this reason, SIHA, with input from the community, began developing a water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project. This project involved creating a curriculum around these topics to teach to grade five students in the Tungi ward. The curriculum is currently being implemented by SIHA’s Tanzanian team and has been operating for one year. Last summer, the International Team worked on evaluating the project and expanding the project into other schools.
Uluguru Repository for Development Investment (URDI) Partnership
URDI is our in-country sister organization. They are our experts on Tanzania and vital to the functioning of SIHA International. They act as liaisons between SIHA and the community and help plan, implement and evaluate projects. They maintain ongoing projects throughout the year while the International Travel Team is out of the country. Through the past summer the International Team has worked on improving communication within the partnership and developing greater financial autonomy between the two organizations.
