Re: USAID Transftrom WASH Program

Dear Daniel Tesfaye,

It is really interesting and impressive idea to provide affordable products and services for sanitation.Indeed, this would increase the use of those products and decrease the cause of disease by lack of improved water and sanitation. However, I do have doubt if enough has been done or to be done on the acceptance and behavioral change of people's using those products?

Re: USAID Transftrom WASH Program

Dear All,
Since sanitation is not a lucrative business it has a challenge to attract fiancé institution to invest in it. To this end, Transform WASH has conducted financing options at house hold level and for the business enterprises. Hence, Please find attached document produced for financing of WASH products and services for USAID Transform WASH.

Re: Commercially Viable Business Development Centers

Dear all,

It is my pleasure to introduce USAID Transform WASH project launched in Ethiopia in 2017. USAID Transform WASH is a five-year activity awarded to PSI and Consortium partners SNV, IRC and Plan International (‘the Consortium’) to test and develop market-based models that will increase demand for and supply of quality, affordable WASH products and services. Through development and testing of scalable and replicable business models, the activity will support and increase capacity of the Government of Ethiopia’s (GOE) One WASH National Program (OWNP) to increase use of improved WASH products and services.

Here with I attached the project brief.
Regards,

Daniel Tesfaye

Re: Commercially Viable Business Development Centers

Dear Daniel,

Would you like to add that project also to PSI's partner profile page and hence to the SuSanA project database?
See also my post about that here:

Re: USAID Transform WASH Program in Ethiopia

Dear Daniel,

I've now added your project to the SuSanA project database, where it now looks like this:
www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database/details/534

I wasn't sure where to place the pin on the map though - so I picked Added Ababa, is that good? (at this stage, only one pin is possible for each project)
You could also still add a characteristic photo or video of the project if you like.

I'll e-mail you separately about this. But I put it here on purpose so that others who have interesting projects to share know how easy it is to get them added to the SuSanA project database. And it is even easier if the project owner is a SuSanA partner like PSI. In that case, Daniel can get his SuSanA login upgraded so that he can add or edit PSI's projects himself in future. To get that upgrade organised you just need to contact the SuSanA secretariat (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). They will also send you the simple instructions on how to add projects. We see this as a great way to share information about your projects in a central place that can be easily accessed, searched and filtered: the SuSanA project database ( www.susana.org/en/knowledge-hub/projects/database ).

Elisabeth
