Project Wash

100% WASH

Water, sanitation and hygiene, or WASH for short – three basic necessities of life that are indispensable for the healthy and self-determined development of every human being.

Neven Subotic Stiftung | Dortmund | 2012​

Since 2012, the Neven Subotic Foundation has been working to provide access to drinking water and sanitary facilities in Ethiopia and now also Kenya and Tanzania. Disclosed figures, data and facts as well as the regular presence of Neven Subotic and the foundation team itself on site ensure the greatest possible transparency. The entire administrative costs are borne by the foundation’s namesake, so that 100 percent of donations flow into the projects.

Problem

One in three people worldwide have no direct access to clean drinking water. To make matters worse, more than half of all people lack safe sanitation. This results in life-threatening conditions due to bacteria and viruses, as well as negative effects on children’s educational opportunities. In this context, girls are particularly (life-)threatened.

Solution

The foundation finances projects that build wells and sanitary facilities for people in northern Ethiopia and, since 2021, in Kenya and Tanzania. In addition to improved health, this has a direct positive effect on education: Children attend school instead of transporting contaminated water for miles from remote water points. ​

Why we support the project

Water and sanitation have been considered a human right since 2010. In addition, the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal number six by 2030 is to achieve universal, equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all people in the world. For us, too, access to clean drinking water and sanitary facilities is a basic prerequisite for a self-determined life.
