Introducing BIRD from Liberia: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

We welcome BIRD  from Liberia as a new SuSanApartner organisation!

The following text is taken from their applicationform and was written by the partner organisation themselves.
Description and Activities in SustainableSanitation:
With the help of partners, BIRD-Liberia will achieve the following under water, sanitation and hygiene:
  1. To increase access to human waste collection and disposal facilities from 15% to 40%
  2. To increase access to safe drinking water from 45% to 90% by 2022.
  3. To conduct awareness and sustainability of 90% of water and sanitation facilities in the country.
  4. Create awareness on open defecation in and around Liberia. 
The significance of water, sanitation and hygiene and its critical role in determining the health status is well acknowledged in the  Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).The sixth SDG emphasizes on achieving universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water, as well as to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene, for all and end open defecation. The strategy document emphasizes on increasing awareness and understanding of adverse health impacts of poor drinking water supplies, lack of adequate sanitation facilities, and poor hygiene. BIRD-Liberia as an institution is charged to conduct massive awareness in achieving these.
