WATER, SANITATION & HYGIENE
Three Stones is recognized for creating platforms to partner with change-agents and our ability to build local capacity, perform monitoring and evaluation and strategically plan and coordinate the various water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector stakeholders. We utilize an integrated WASH approach and combine the differing sectors of health, education, child protection/security, and livelihoods. For example, in Jordan we recently led the Humanitarian to Sustainable WASH for the Middle East and North Africa Regional strategy for UNICEF.
Successful WASH programming depends on a process of capacity enhancement of stakeholders from community members, teachers, educators, public health engineering, rural development departments, NGOs and CBOs. Three Stones uses WASH as a bridge to link children, their families and communities.
We offer comprehensive expertise in training, ensuring that communities and local leaders are skilled to successfully implement activities and sustainably achieve intended outcomes. For example, we recently led and designed the five-year WASH strategy for both WaterAid Rwanda and Uganda.
Three Stones provides dynamic and collaborative services including impact analysis, policy advocacy, staff training, team-building and leadership development.
We believe in the power of WASH capacity building to empower institutions and communities to better plan, manage, budget, monitor and evaluate project activities. By working to increase capacity, Three Stones has helped organizations and communities to improve accountability and program more effectively, equitably and efficiently. We believe that strengthened capacity heightens WASH ownership and improves the likelihood of sustainability.
We specialize in five domains of WASH:
WASH country and organization strategy with a strong focus on policy development
Evaluation, assessments and research
WASH work around the Theory of Change
Innovative WASH work ranging from menstrual hygiene management to transition from humanitarian to sustainable WASH
Integrated WASH in program design on aspects such as health, nutrition, education and external factors such as climate change
