For three decades, Thrive Network/East Meet West (TN/EMWF) programs have benefited underserved populations in Asia with its mission to improve their health and well-being through evidence-based programs in the areas of water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH). Under the Water for Women (WfW) Fund supported by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), TN/EMWF’s Women-led Output-Based Aid (WOBA) projects in Cambodia and Vietnam look to extend rural water and sanitation access to the most vulnerable groups while empowering women as leaders in WASH.


This learning brief shares WOBA Vietnam’s experience and lessons learned in building staff and partners’ capacity to implement gender equity and social inclusion (GSI) practice in rural WASH programming.
