Urban Resilience Project

Water and sanitation

You will never solve poverty without solving water and sanitation

We support Goal 6 - CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION

Poverty in urban areas is escalating faster than in rural areas as a result of unemployment, rural-urban migration and population growth on the backdrop of under financed infrastructure maintanance and development and the nation is currently facing severe lack of basic social services such as WASH, Waste management, transport, health services and electricity. BOOST Fellowship in partnership with United Nations Development Programme – UNDP UNDP Zimbabwe have started on an Urban Resilience project focusing on WASH and youth employment creation to solve major constraints being faced in peri-urban and urban locations. Target locations being Chipinge town, Gwanda town and Harare (Budiriro and Glernview). We are very excited and looking forward to work well with communities and all necessary stakeholder from now until the end of the program
