Resources and Tools

Our aim is to improve efficiencies and delivery of WASH through the sharing of useful resources and tools for and from our CSO and research partners, local organisations and governments on the ground in the 15 countries our projects are operating, as well as the global WASH sector. 

These resources and tools will broadly fit under the main categories listed below which will be added to and updated over the course of of Water for Women.

 Gender & Social Inclusion (GSI)

Gender equality and social inclusion are central to Water for Women. Actively involving all people within communities (women, men, marginalised groups, people with disabilities) ensures more equitable and inclusive processes, which lead to more effective and sustainable outcomes in water, sanitation and hygiene. 

The Fund is committed to gender equality and social inclusion (GSI) in line with global commitments in WASH and beyond, and further contributing to the well-established evidence base regarding the connection between inclusive, equitable and sustainable WASH, and improved gender equality and social inclusion outcomes (WSSCC et al, 2006).

Sexual and Gender Minority Inclusion

During the global COVID-19 pandemic, the discrimination and exclusion faced by sexual and gender minorities (SGM) has been exacerbated.

We have created a list of useful resources which are a must read to help the WASH sector embed SGM inclusion in all COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 responses.


Access resources

 Disability Inclusion

People with disability already face multiple barriers when it comes to accessing WASH. They are also at increased risk of contracting COVID-19 and are more likely to be disproportionately affected by the health, economic and social impacts of the global health pandemic.

However, while the poorest and least powerful are likely to be worst affected in crisis situations, we can work to alleviate the inequality through our response.

Access resources

 Menstrual Health and Hygiene 

The time is over for peripheral programming on menstrual health and hygiene (MHH) in WASH. It is now pivotal, particularly given the context of COVID-19 restrictions, which have exacerbated period poverty and decreased availability and access to hygienic facilities, sanitary products and information to support stigma-free safe and dignified menstruation.
