In 2018, Wai was chosen as one of the eight cities across the globe for the City Wide Inclusive Sanitation Program (CWIS) funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). The municipal council of Wai (WMC) with support from Center of Water and Sanitation (CWAS), CRDF, CEPT University (CEPT) is aiming to implement the CWIS goals
and principles in Wai.
Under the CWIS framework, one of the aspects is Safety. As a part of our work on safety and inclusivity, a study on understanding the sanitation workers was conducted. The study focused on use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
The findings of this study were used to draft recommendations for WMC. The recommendations were implemented by WMC, resulting in an overall improvement in the working conditions of all sanitation workers in Wai. The report showcases how sanitation worker safety has been institutionalized in Wai.
