The SWIFT Consortium has provided access to sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene in three provinces in eastern DRC, and in three northern counties in Kenya, as well as Nairobi’s informal settlements.
Activities in Liberia were ended in December 2014 as a result of the Ebola outbreak.
By March 2016, the SWIFT Consortium had reached almost 850,000 people in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya with safe water or sanitation, and hygiene promotion activities - in some cases all three. It will continue to work with communities, local authorities, health bodies, utilities and radio stations until March 2018 to build capacity and ensure interventions are sustainable.
In March 2017, SWIFT started preparations for a second programme in DRC that will reach more than 700,000 people with WASH activities by December 2018.
The SWIFT Consortium is funded with UK aid from the British people under a ‘Payment by Results’ contract.
