Project Title : Increasing access to safe emergency water and culturally appropriate hygiene education to drought affected vulnerable women, girls, boys and men in Somaliland and Puntland

Project Summary : The proposed project will complement DRC's drought targeted Integrated Emergency Responses and will enable DRC to provide a complete assistance package to the drought affected communities in Woqooyi Galbeed of Somaliland, Bari and eastern Sanaag of Puntland in terms of WASH through provision of adequate safe and clean water, rehabilitation of strategic existing water sources with adequate yield (Boreholes and shallow wells), provision of culturally appropriate hygiene education, promotion of household water treatment through provision and distribution of water purification tablets prioritizing the most vulnerable households targeting girls, boys, women and boys. The specific interventions to be implemented include; 30 days water voucher for 1000 HHs, rehabilitation of 4 boreholes as per attached BOQ, rehabilitation of 5 shallow wells, hygiene promotion and distribution of water purification tablets at household level (800HHs). DRC will provide the most vulnerable households with water storage containers to store drinking water. Based on the water quality monitoring results, DRC will provide remedial measures through awareness raising on safe water handling by regularly conducting sanitary surveys to suspected water sources to identify risk factors, treatment options like chlorination will be done during rehabilitation of these wells and boreholes and DRC will promote household water treatment in areas where water treatment is not feasible at the water source. In addition DRC will also form water management committees for proposed rehabilitated water sources and systems and build their capacity to manage the water sources to ensure the sustainability of the proposed interventions. This will be done in close collaboration with the local authorities and water ministries in the respective areas. A total of 4671 HHs (28026 individuals of which 6165 are women, 5045 men, 9249 girls and 7567 boys) are expected to benefit from this project action.
