Result of the call for proposals 2018

11 October, 2018 [Global Care]

Knorr-Bremse Global Care has carried out a call for proposals for its further project countries. Now a decision has been made.

  • Women fetching water from an unsafe water point in South Omo

  • A non functioning infrastructure leads to diseases and infections in Domeabra, Ghana

  • The open water tank could lead to polluted water in Central province, Sri Lanka

The call for proposals was looking for WASH projects in Ethiopia, Ghana, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Over 30 high-quality applications with a total volume of over three million euros were submitted. Now the members of Knorr-Bremse Global Care decided which projects will be funded:

Ethiopia: Many Ethiopian people still lack access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. Norwegian Church Aid will support the local communities to build their own water supply in South Omo Zone. Additionally, gender-segregated latrines will be built in three schools, hence girls can attend school more frequently.

Ghana: Cities grow very fast, but required infrastructure cannot be provided in reasonable time. Especially the lack of waste water management leads to unhygienic conditions and diseases and infections are the consequences. The organization "Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WUSP)" tackles the problem with the construction of public and private toilets.

Sri Lanka: Although Sri Lanka is abounding in water, many people in the Central and Uva provinces have only limited access to safe drinking water. This is due to broken water systems. Together with the community members Chrysalis will repair old and build new water systems.
