|Employer:||Norwegian Refugee Council|
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is a non-governmental, humanitarian organization with 60 years of experience in helping to create a safer and more dignified life for refugees and internally displaced people. NRC advocates for the rights of displaced populations and offers assistance within the shelter, education, emergency food security, legal assistance, and water,sanitation and hygiene sectors.
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has been present in Somalia since early 2004 and has since expanded its programme. Since 2004, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has demonstrated a regional competence and expertise in working with displaced populations. The Regional Office is based in Nairobi, Kenya with offices and operations in Somalia (Puntland, Somaliland and South & Central), Kenya, Ethiopia Yemen, Djibouti and South Sudan.
South Central Somalia is still recovering from the massive shock of the 2011 famine. This recovery is in the context of protracted conflict, massive displacement, high vulnerability to natural hazards, poor to no primary services in many areas and a barely functioning central government. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion (WASH) is one of the most neglected sectors in Somalia. In most part of Somalia, less than 20% of households have access to protected water source and less than 40% have access to sanitation . Lack of safe drinking water access has contributed to staggering levels of diarrhoeal diseases, particularly among the young, the immune-compromised, and the poor. Poor sanitary and hygienic conditions in densely populated settlements and unsafe water sources are a major cause of malnutrition throughout the country. Until WASH concerns can be properly addressed, the cycle of acute malnutrition in under-fives will persist. Communities also continually identify poor hygiene as a major hazard they face . Additionally, poor sanitation conditions and facilities expose vulnerable households and individuals, especially women and children, to risk including sexual assault while travelling longer distances in search of water or while using improperly-designed or poorly-located latrine facilities.
NRC intends to promote long-term sustainability of WASH services through use of Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) approach which have been proven to work almost in every country they have been deployed. The CLTS approach will be used to promote safe hygiene practices and scale-up of sanitation coverage in both IDP and host communities’ settlements with the aim of achieving ODF (Open Defecation Free) IDP camps or villages.
