Case studies

Water, sanitation and hygiene: Lulinda, DRC

A case study on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in Lulinda, Democratic Republic of Congo

2018 Available in English

This case study looks at the village mobilisation approach called Healthy Villages and Schools (Villages et Écoles Assainis) used to improve access to clean, safe water in South Kivu, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The approach uses a gravity-fed water system at nearby Lusenda, from which water is piped to a number of taps in Lulinda. Tearfund has also helped the community elect a ‘healthy village’ management committee and a subcommittee that collects fees from each household to pay for maintenance and repairs to the system.
