Water Sanitation and Hygiene

This program is another key area of intervention for SFH Rwanda. The organization utilizes a social marketing approach to promote water purifying products known as Sur’Eau and P&G to communities with limited access to clean and safe water. We also conduct behavior change communications to promote the use of clean water within households across Rwanda, alongside a number of unique strategies.
