Walu International is dedicated to permanently improving hygiene and sanitation conditions in communities.
We believe in the fundamental dignity of all people, and that clean water and basic sanitation are an inherent human right. Our take on sanitation draws on community based development, which focuses on educating and empowering local populations to identify their own problems and come up with the most appropriate solutions.
Our methodology is to empower communities. We do this by creating community ownership and training committees so they will be equipped to lead.
Through educational lessons, meetings, and training our goal is to provide the community an opportunity to openly speak about problems they are facing and to discuss ways to resolve these problems using local resources.
Walu is building relationships with communities who want to improve their sanitation and hygiene conditions. We cannot train them without your help! Every time you use a toilet or have a glass of water, please consider helping those who do not have the same access to improved sources as you.Learn More
