About 173,000 Nigerians living in Lagos communities bordered by Ojodu, Ikorodu and Ikotun Local Council Development Areas are expected to benefit from a water, sanitation and hygiene project about to be embarked upon by WaterAid Nigeria with funding by Pepsico Foundation.

To this effect and to kick-start the implementation, a launch of the project named ‘Pepsico Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Project’ was recently held in Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria.

The 3-year project aims to strengthen water, sanitation and hygiene service delivery systems and contribute to building the capacity of women and girls by empowering them to be part of WASH decision-making processes as they mostly bear the brunt of WASH-related challenges.

WaterAid Nigeria had secured the three-year grant from Pepsico Foundation following the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the organisation and the Lagos State Ministry of Environment and Water Resources to support the regulation and improvement of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene(WASH) in the state.
