Federacion nacional de Cooperativas de Servicios Sanitarios Ltda. Chile
Chile 

WHO ARE WE? We are a Chilean non-profit organization composed of experts recognized by the State of Chile in community management of rural and peri-urban water and sanitation. FESAN is made up of 7 large Chilean cooperatives for drinking water and rural sanitation, characterized by excellent management and providing drinking water to more than 100,000 people. Our team integrates technical and social expertise: social leaders, hydraulic engineers, political science professionals, and experts in administrative and commercial management. WHAT DO WE DO AND WHY? In FESAN we are convinced that it is not enough to deliver water and/or sanitation works to a community: it is essential to ensure that the service is maintained over time. That is why we work hand in hand with rural and peri-urban communities to ensure the sustainability of their access to safe drinking water and sanitation services through participatory training programs and projects. We improve the operational management and governance of organizations by strengthening their own capacities.


Concepts for community programmes
Somalia 

Concepts for Community Programmes is a national non-profit humanitarian and development organization dedicated to working with communities to reach their full potential. Founded in 2011, CCP works across all the Federal states of Somalia promoting social cohesion and empowering communities to tackle the causes of poverty and injustice. We provide humanitarian assistance to families affected by disaster & conflict while partnering with communities for long-term solutions to alleviate poverty. Motivated by the potential in the communities we work with, we optimize their role to foster peaceful co-existence and economic empowerment in Somalia.

Neema HEEP Ltd
Kenya 

Neema HEEP is a microfinance organization in Kenya. We work with BOP clients to improve their health, education and economic status. We provide sanitation loans to those who cannot afford to construct an improved toilet upfront. The clients then repay the loan in affordable installments while enjoying the benefits of the toilet. We also provide loans to self help groups of women in the soap making industry. The soap is sold to the toilet owners for hand washing. We provide loans to youth who make interlocking bricks for construction of the toilets. In so doing we create an ecosystem in the communities.
