Water projects – sounds simple and yet is so versatile! We support projects in various countries with the comprehensive WASH approach. In addition, we are constantly developing further creative approaches to support the success of the projects. We work together with local and international partner organisations. Together for the Water for All vision!

WASH is an acronym for “Water, Sanitation, Hygiene”

The interconnection between access to clean drinking water, sanitation facilities and hygiene awareness is followed by all Viva con Agua WASH projects. This magic triangle makes a lasting contribution to the success of the measures implemented as part of the projects.

We support most of our projects on the African continent. Our focus in Switzerland is on projects in South Africa, Mozambique, Uganda, Nepal, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Madagascar. In some cases, we have long-standing professional and personal connections with these countries and our local partner organisations.

Our big goal: access to clean water for everyone in the world. With our WASH strategy, we want to make an important contribution to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 6: Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.
