Meeting To Solidify “WASH” Related Activities

The meeting aimed to explore collaboration opportunities between the Federal ministry and the SFH

A meeting was organised by the Society for Family Health, which was a result of the recently conducted Joint Supportive Supervisory Visits in Edo and Nasarawa State.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss further exploring collaboration opportunities between the federal ministry and the Society for Family Health in order to strengthen WASH activities- preparedness, prevention and emergency response through sensitisation across the implementing states.


The Symposium was led by the Deputy Managing Director of Programme Delivery, Mr Kene Eruchalu alongside Assistant Practice Lead, TB, WASH and Corporate Philanthropy Practice Area, Mrs Jane Chinyere Adizue, through the WASH for Healthy Lives Project

The officials felt excited to receive Mr Olu-Daniels Ibiyemi Oluyemi, Director (IV), Water Quality Control & Sanitation, and Mr Ebofin Olusoji Charles, Assistant Chief Geologist, WASH Response & Collaboration both from the Federal Ministry of Water Resources and Sanitation.

The meeting was a resounding call to action to solidify our commitment to advocating for health and hygiene within communities, and we look forward to positive outcomes.

The Society for Family Health carried out a joint Supportive Supervisory Visit as a part of a project called “WASH for Healthy Lives (W4HL)”. The visit lasted five full days.

The visit was done alongside key representatives from the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Water Resources, both at the State and Federal Governments.

The organisations visited the project’s intervention sites, including schools and communities in Nasarawa State.


These visits aim to advocate, monitor, and ensure that the appropriate messages on water, sanitation, and hygiene are shared and other activities are effectively implemented in the field, including ensuring the right usage of the P & G Water Purifier.

Both Interpersonal Communication Agents (IPCA), peer educators, and community leaders/ members have expressed a strong commitment to promoting healthy lives for all as they were left with more knowledge on the importance of practising good hygiene.
