The MSABI Education Team has started another round of mobilization activities associated to the Pump for Life program, and part of the HDIF grant.
During mobilization, the team conducts village meetings, house to house visits for sensitization on WASH, and introduces the services and products which MSABI offers.
Among others, we present Pump for Life, which is a premium based subscription program for water point maintenance, and the Tembo filters, simple ceramic filters locally produced, which guarantee clean and safe drinking water to the households. Communities have shown interest and an increase in the use of our services and products has been seen.
The objectives of the Mobilization Activities are multiple and include education on WASH issues as such, and marketing of services and products. During the meetings, MSABI fills in questionnaires which assess understanding and current situation within the communities. This helps MSABI to evaluate what the communities need / want as well as the market for possible future offerings.
So far, a total of 38 meetings and 659 people were reached (Women=190, Men=128 and Children=341).
