East Meets West Foundation/ Thrive Networks affirms its commitment to inclusive, equitable and sustainable development, which leaves no one behind

On the occasion of International Day of Disabled Persons, Monday 3 December 2018, East Meets West Foundation/ Thrive Networks affirms its commitment to inclusive, equitable and sustainable development, which leaves no one behind.  Our recent programme launched in September,  Community Hygiene and Water – Women led Output-based aid project (WOBA) aims to reach 20,000 households with hygienic toilets and 8,000 poor and socially excluded households with clean piped water through funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Australian Government. This 5.7 million Australian-dollar program is part of a larger regional initiative, called ‘Water for Women’ in 17 countries. WOBA has a focus on ensuring gender equality and social inclusion in all activities undertaken in Vietnam from 2018 to 2022. 

WOBA will institutionalize successful approaches for reaching rural, low-income and socially excluded households with improved access to clean water, safely managed sanitation, and hygiene.  This will include with working with suppliers and local partners to make modifications to facilities to improve access for persons with disabilities.

WOBA will support the government to embed a targeted smart-subsidy program with provincial governments steadily increasing their co-financing of the approach, with purposefully targeting of households with persons with disabilities and other marginalized groups.

East Meets West/Thrive Networks has been operating in Vietnam for 30 years and is one of the few non-governmental organizations in Vietnam focusing on rural water supply and sanitation. EMW has many high-impact programs and projects in the fields of health, clean water and sanitation, education and infrastructure for communities throughout Vietnam. To date, EMW has invested over US $120 million in Vietnam.

The mission found out that although some progress has been achieved in completing disbursement linked indicators (DLI) in 2016, 2017 and early 2018, the program implementation has been slow and not satisfied at medium level in terms of both progress and development objectives according to the WB review system.

 New arisen issues were not been mentioned directly although having important role in the other part of the program such as iec for water supply to contribute to achieving DLI on water supply connections (DLI 1.3) and sustainable connections (DLI 2.1), also finding out that full achievement of substainable water supply connection (80% of connection after 2 year operation) as the Program criteria is very challengeing, especially for the schemes managed by commune people committee. Therefore WB considred to revise the indicator sustainable connections (DLI 2.1) to be 2 levels

  • Medium substainable (level I): At leaset 60% of connections operating well after 1 year operation and implementing IEC on water supply.
  • Fully substainable: At least 70% of connections operating well after 2 year operation.
