    HAUPA: Mozambique
    {MOZ-2008-SB-003.jpg} In 2004, CARE began the Productive Uses of Water Project (known by the Portuguese acronym, HAUPA) in the two Northern provinces of Mozambique, Cabo Delgado and Nampula. Since that time, over 500,000 people living in rural areas have improved access to water and sanitation through a variety of community-selected technologies such as boreholes, rainwater catchment systems, small dams, piped systems, and ecologically sound latrines. CARE began by engaging local and provincial governments and community members to form Maintenance Groups* and networks of local nonprofit and private sector groups involved in parts commercialization to ensure equal voices of all stakeholders in the planning stages, a network of project contributors during implementation, and a foundation for sustainability and expansion of the water and latrine points after the completion of the project. In the past, poor quality construction, high maintenance costs, and lack of clarity over who is responsible for maintaining and repairing water systems has resulted in a preponderance of defunct water points. By beginning with community engagement and utilization of local artisans for the design of the water and sanitation infrastructure as well as presenting the community with options for multiple-use water systems that can not only improve the quality of their drinking water but also increase their household income through irrigation for crops and rainwater catchment that provides water for poultry and livestock, HAUPA facilitates community ownership in the water and sanitation infrastructure, both financially and conceptually.

    Past Projects
    WASHplus Mali
    The WASHplus project supported healthy households and communities by creating and delivering interventions that lead to improvements in WASH and household air pollution (HAP). This five-year project (2010-2015), funded through USAID’s Bureau for Global Health and led by FHI360 in partnership with CARE and Winrock International, used at-scale programming approaches to reduce diarrheal diseases and acute respiratory infections, the two top killers of children under age 5 globally. This brief discusses WASH and Nutrition technical approaches.

    Our membership of WSUP provides us with insight and experience of working with other organisations more familiar with such aspects as reducing leakages in urban water networks, helping water utilities to model the financial implications of extending their systems to informal settlements and how to improve the environmental conditions of slums.
    CARE has, in turn, influenced the other members of WSUP to adopt approaches that integrate water, sanitation and hygiene, are community based and inclusive. CARE’s engagement with WSUP will also enable a more coordinated approach to promote pro-poor urban service delivery approach, focussing on utilities and regulators.

    Research from the second phase of SWASH+ can be found here. SWASH+ II builds on prior research to improve the sustainability and effectiveness of school water, sanitation and hygiene at scale in order to support the Government of Kenya’s Comprehensive School Health Policy. The project aims to streamline the "policy challenge-learning-policy change" cycle by including government agencies, civil society and learning partners directly within the project steering committee. Though promoting the sustainability and effectiveness of school WASH is the primary goal of the project, a secondary goal of the program will be to lay the foundation for a potential longer term partnership between the Ministry of Education and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
