Village Wash Committe (VWC)

Environment Water, Sanitation & Hygiene

AXION

The core of the programme is the Village WASH Committee (VWC), made up of 11 members - 6 female and 5 male - with representation from all stakeholder groups. The VWC meet bi-monthly to assess existing water and sanitation situation of the entire village and identify issues that need urgent action. They select sites for community water sources, collect money and monitor usage and maintenance of latrines. Committee members are also responsible for identifying ultra-poor households eligible for BRAC and the Government’s Annual Development Programme grants. In addition, committee members are also responsible for selecting poor households for providing micro loan support to install sanitary latrines and to construct tube well platform. To strengthen the capacity of VWCs, two key members from each committee (one female and one male) were provided leadership training at a BRAC facility.
