Our goal is to provide an improved and sustained access to community managed water resources, sanitation and hygiene services that will eventually contribute to a reduction of morbidity and mortality due to diseases associated with inadequate sanitation.. The key objectives addressed by this sector are: to increase access to and utilization of safe water; to improve sanitation and hygiene facilities; to increase awareness and knowledge on benefits of use and consumption of safe water; and to build capacities of community leaders and water committees to manage water sources. AFOD strongly engages with communities in needs assessment, decision-making and coordination with stakeholders to ensure that our planning and service delivery targets the actual needs of the community, and that programs are based on current evidence of what works on the ground. Economic growth and poverty alleviation are often influenced by inadequate or lack of WASH services. According to the 2010 South Sudan Household Survey, only 55% of the population has access to improved water supplies, while just 14.6% had access to basic sanitation. On average, rural water consumption is around 6 liters per capita per day, compared to 150 liters per capita per day in the UK. With no access to latrines, people have no choice but to defecate in the outskirts of their homesteads.
In May 2013, AFOD South Sudan, conducted a rapid WASH assessment in Rodolo Boma, Mangalla Payam (Central Equatoria State) and AFOD is hoping to use this information to find ways of helping the community.
