DigDeep leverages their reputation as the first global WASH* organization to return home in order to build a powerful domestic WASH sector that unites communities, policy makers, businesses, academic institutions, funders, and frontline organizations.
*WASH (or WaSH) is an acronym that stands for "water, sanitation and hygiene". Universal, affordable and sustainable access to WASH is a key public health and equity issue and is the focus of UN Sustainable Development Goal 6.
When DigDeep plans a local project, every effort is made to source all the necessary work (ex. well drilling) from within the affected community in support of the local economy. Each project empowers local stakeholders to defend their own rights… as decision-makers, maintenance-trainees, construction specialists or community spokesmen (to name a few roles).
