Systematically equitable and sustainable access to water and sanitation is an essential human right recognised by the United Nations, and ensures communities can be peaceful and resilient in the face of health and wellbeing risks and climate changes.
My advocacy is committed to improving access to #WASH for the nearly one-third of Nigerian children who do not have enough water to meet their daily needs, with over 60 million people in Nigeria lacking access to a basic clean water supply. The most marginalised, women and girls, suffer disproportionately from inadequate water resources and WASH services, increasing the likelihood of #GBV and decreasing economic freedoms.
My Wellbeing Foundation Africa is dedicated to Nigeria achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, and strategically integrates #SDG 6: availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all, through a results-oriented advocacy action plan that builds on our nation’s situation analysis and context-specific indicators, with the progressive reduction and elimination of inequalities between communities at the forefront.
We must make certain that water supply and infrastructure are clean, safe, affordable and socio-economically beneficial to all; this demands critical collaboration and co-investment at all levels of government, water providers, the private sector, and community-based organisations. By working together, we can guarantee a future where everyone can be water-rich.
