Our Projects

CONIWAS is an abbreviation for the Coalition of NGOs in Water and Sanitation. Various NGOs in the water and sanitation sector have over the years contributed immensely to the sector in this country. The number of such NGOs is large, their locations approaches/strategies have been virtually impossible to track. Their work and achievements were thus rarely documented nor coordinated as complementary to national efforts.

 

The absence of a clear mechanism for gathering and disseminating the growing experiences of NGOs makes it difficult to use field lessons to influence the sector and advocate for social changes. This situation among others stimulated the interest in forming a coalition with a unified voice, capable of mobilizing sector actors for actions that are non-confrontational but capable of resolving sector concerns. Giving the NGOs one voice for advocacy and lobbying has been one major benefit to the coalition.

 

CONIWAS has its head office in Accra but as a body nationwide, CONIWAS also has coordinators for the Northern, Middle and Southern zones.

 

Our major partners include most of the donor agencies like, DANIDA, CIDA, European Union, WaterAid Ghana, UNICEF,  just to mention a few.

 

Additionally we work closely with the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing, the Community Water and Sanitation Agency (CWSA) and other key players in the water and sanitation sector.
