SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENT

This essential program aims to introduce new and sustainable activities with a focus on reversing the loss of environmental resources. Our main objective is to preserve the ecosystem and create a healthy environment through providing clean drinking water, better sanitation facilities, waste disposal, suitable adaptation to climate change and increase in forestation. Our purpose is to raise the quality of life of individuals by providing them a clean environment to live in.

During the process of social mobilization, the issues regarding environment are highlighted in the community and possible solutions are discussed. Our sustainable environment team helps with problems which the communities are not able to solve themselves, by approaching donors for partnerships, especially for Community Physical Infrastructure (CPI) projects. These include installation of hand pumps, tube wells, safe drinking water plants, construction of link roads, water channels lining, street pavements, latrines, sewerage system, flood bunds, reservoirs and delay action dams among others.
