Short Description:

Overall goal

“Boosting Integrated Rural Development (BIRD)”, a Red Cross Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Project, aims to contribute to improved livelihood and reduced vulnerability of the rural population in Benishangul Gumuz in western Ethiopia.

Specific objective is the improved state of health based on reduction of water, sanitation and hygiene related diseases.

Target groups:
