WASEP has significantly altered the WASH landscape of isolated mountainous regions of Pakistan, while ensuring its sustainability and resilience, through an innovative participatory approach. Along with technological advancements, it involves systematic recognition of grass-root realities, local indigenous knowledge, and an integrated community centric-approach towards engineering and implementing bottom-up solutions.
Since 1997, WASEP has provided access to safe drinking water to more than 52,000 households, led the construction of over 21,000 latrines, and initiated an extensive behavioral change campaign to improve health and hygiene.
