Highlights

Example of an integrated development approach in 19 de Outubro Village

GSB is trying the best to always use an integrated approach, that includes WASH, food security and renewable energies, to assist communities to meet their main challenges. We strongly believe that with better water and sanitation conditions, people won't get sick regularly (mainly with diarrhoea and cholera)  and their nutrients that are in general scarce will be kept in their bodies and the children will not suffer from malnutrition. And women’s workload with fetching water and wood, as well as taking care of the ill won't be so heavy. read more
