Sustainable WASH in Fragile Contexts (SWIFT)

2014 - 2018 • Oxfam (with Tearfund and ODI)

Purpose

To provide water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services to people in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Kenya. Helping to bridge the gap between humanitarian and development programmes.

Activities

Sustainable WASH in Fragile Contexts SWIFT, is a consortium led by Oxfam with Tearfund and ODI. In eastern DRC Oxfam works with three local partners and with Tearfund to deliver improved access to water, primarily via gravity-fed schemes and spring protection, together with sanitation and hygiene work aligned to the national Villages et Ecoles Assainis programme for sanitation and hygiene. In Kenya Oxfam works with Practical Action, Concern, and BBC Media Action to deliver improved WASH in northern Kenya, and with Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP) and latrines franchise provider Sanergy to provide services in low-income settlements in Nairobi.

The programme was active in Liberia but this was suspended and subsequently terminated during the 2014-2015 outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease. In March 2015 DFID and Oxfam agreed a renegotiated contract to focus on two countries - DRC and Kenya.
