The four-year project of Handicap International addresses the semi-nomad communities of Somali land, a particularly vulnerable group. The aim of the project is to improve the access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities. In doing that, one of the main aims is to include people with disabilities in all the project phases.
Water shortage is an essential problem for many farmers. Therefore, the idea is to restore former ponds, and to make them safe from animals’ faeces and environmental pollution. Furthermore, ponds and sanitation structures have been adapted/designed to make them accessible for people with disabilities.
Not only people with disabilities benefit from the restored ponds (with safe water), but the community at large will benefit. In addition, ensuring safe water prevents the infection from water-borne diseases.
