Work to improve water and sanitation standards in poor Ethiopian communities has won a Tearfund partner and a coalition of development organisations a key award.

Efforts to promote behavioural change concerning hygiene, sanitation and water use earned the Ethiopian WASH (water and sanitation) Movement recognition and praise during Africa Water Week.

The movement was also applauded for campaigning to increase the political and social commitment for progress in these areas.

Addise Amado, from Tearfund Ethiopian partner the Kale Heywet Church, received the NGO/Civil Society AfricaSan award on behalf of the movement. The Kale Heywet Church is a founding member of the Ethiopian WASH Movement.
