With 01.12.2018 Austrian Red Cross together with its partners embarked on an exciting 5-years regional WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) capacity strengthening programme in East Africa.
It is the overall aim of The Skybird Programme to contribute to improved living conditions – incl. health, environment and livelihood – in East Africa through increased innovation, strengthened capacities and partnerships of the Red Cross and Red Crescent (RCRC) movement in WASH and related fields to enable more gender sensitive and effective WASH service delivery.
