Ethiopia Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Regional State Kaffa Zone 6 districts (Cheta, Gewata, Gimbo, Tello, Chena, Menjo)
Ethiopia registers one of the lowest levels of water and sanitation coverage in the world. In addition to low levels of coverage, water quality is another serious and urgent issue. One of the highly exposed areas to this kind of risk is the Kaffa Zone in SNNPRS (South Nation Nationalities and Peoples Regional State). This intervention focuses on water supply and environmental hygiene of the communities in the Kaffa Region (in six districts) through establishing community water management committee, organizing training of dedicated staff, raising awareness on WASH at community level, and strengthening the role of women in the community. read more close
