Objective:The project was implemented from June 2008 to May 2011 by Water.org with the support of ten NGOs and Micro Finance Institutions (MFIs) to deliver safe water and/or sanitation access to over 2.5 lakhs beneficiaries across 10 districts in 5 states. The overall purpose of the Project was to improve people’s lives through the construction of household water and sanitation improvements and hygiene education. An impact evaluation was commissioned to NRMC to assess the outcomes of the project two years post-construction. The study aimed to examine the outcome indicators and compare results between Water Credit and Direct Impact program areas and the nature of improvements.

NRMC India’s Role:

The evaluation focussed on the current status of the respondents with respect to water, sanitation and hygiene and compare it with the baseline and end-line to understand the changes that have happened over the project period:
    • The evaluation was a program level assessment with theme wise evaluation using qualitative and quantitative research methods.
    • The qualitative component sought to identify the triggers and barriers to certain behavior related to use of water, toilets and hygiene practices.
    • The study covered each partner highlighting the best practices and impact in their respective areas
