As with all progressive countries, Governments do not work in isolation to meet the basic needs of its people. They work with all sectors – private, public, civil society and individuals to do so. Programs and projects work to make this possible.
With this understanding, the Department of Food and Nutrition under the Federal Ministry of Health in Nigeria partnered with EnvironFocus to run a project titled, “Improving Nigeria’s Health Index through Safe Drinking Water”. Safe drinking water will be made available to select hospitals and cholera-prone communities. These communities will include schools and internally displaced people (IDP) camps. The objective is to collect data that will help provide a baseline to develop standard guidelines on Household Water Treatment and Safe storage practices in Nigeria.
This partnership will go a long way towards achieving the UN 2030 Agenda aimed at reducing poverty in all its forms. It will be meeting the following SDGs: SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation,
SDG 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages, SDG 11: Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
We are looking for implementation partners that will help move this project forward.
- A bilateral government partnership opportunity
- A public-private partnership and CSR opportunity for private firms
- Organizations will be working with the government to help develop a welfare structure that is currently non-existent in Nigeria as opposed to working individually.
- The Ministry will make all its resources – media, network etc. available for this project. Participating businesses will get maximum exposure.
- It will be a collaborative effort that will be beneficial to all. The Ministry is happy to discuss and meet each organization’s requirements for participation.
