Safe water, sanitation and hygiene service provision, but the skills, knowledge and confidence learned will strengthen these women to stand up for all of their rights, pursue their ambitions, and demand a better life for themselves, their family, and their community.
Support our Odisha project because achieving clean water and sanitation for all by 2030 will not be possible without the full and meaningful participation of women in political and social decision making. Support these women to stand up for their rights and make their voice heard.

IRC and the Watershed program
IRC is an international non-profit organization that works with governments, NGOs, businesses and people around the world to find long-term solutions to the global water crisis, sanitation and hygiene services. We believe that the inclusion of women in decision making and politics is fundamental to ensuring sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene systems for all, globally.
The Watershed program is a strategic partnership between IRC, Wetlands International, Simavi and Akvo. It matters on advocating and lobbying for the inclusion of marginalized groups in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) governance, and building the capacity of civil society organizations to represent these marginalized groups and advocate for sustainable WASH services for all.
Civil society organizations are fundamental to ensuring participation of every WASH user, particularly women, and accountability of the government and service providers. Watershed shares skills with these organizations for advocacy and lobbying through training and workshops. The Odisha project provides women with the right knowledge and skills to stand up, speak out and make decisions for themselves, by themselves.
