clubofmozambique (2012-07-06) Australia will continue to partner with non-government organisations to deliver better access to water, sanitation and hygiene practices in Africa with additional funding of AU$97 million for The Civil Society, Water Sanitation and Hygiene Fund, announced HE Ann Harrap, High Commissioner to Mozambique, in Pretoria today.

"Water-related diseases claim the lives of 6,000 people each day and diarrhoea kills 1.5 million children every year. It is the second leading cause of death in children under the age of five. I am honoured to announce that the Australian Government will provide further assistance for less-privileged communities to gain access to safe water, improved sanitation and improved hygiene practices," said Ms Harrap.

The Civil Society WASH Fund is a competitive grants program that will support civil society organisations to deliver water, sanitation and hygiene programs in Africa, as well as Asia and the Pacific. It will be managed by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID). Grants for individual civil society programs are expected to be in the order of AU$10 million across four years. The implementation period is expected to start in February 2013.

The funding announced today builds on Australia’s original AU$32.6 million contribution to the WASH Fund, through which AusAID has been able to deliver access to safe water to more than 560,000 people and help 780,000 people gain basic sanitation.

Civil society organisations from Mozambique are eligible to apply for grants through the WASH Fund. For more information about the funding and application process please visit www.ausaid.gov.au/aidissues/watersanitation/Pages/csowash.aspx
