Aisha Abubakar, 11 years old, used to walk to the community borehole to fetch water several times a day. After her grandmother bought water storage drums using an e-voucher provided by Catholic Relief Services, Aisha can now store the water she fetches and has to gather water only twice in a day. She uses the time she saves to study. Gasmu, Jakusko LGA, Yobe state.
Background: The Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Support for Boko Haram conflict-affected families in Yobe State project was implemented by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and funded by the USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) between April 2016 to May 2017. The project helped internally displaced persons (IDPs) and host family households to gain knowledge about good hygiene practices and access to WASH non-food items (NFIs) using e-vouchers.
