Enhancing local capacity for lasting change

WaterAid/ Prashanth Vishwanathan

One of WaterAid India’s key strategies is to build the capacity of people, their institutions, government functionaries, and agency sectors. This to enable key stakeholders to recognise and deliver on their rights, duties, and responsibilities. Capacity building is also about bringing around change from within a local system.

We reached 57,000 people during the first seven months of 2016. Of this, 51 per cent were women, and 11 per cent exclusively from socially marginalised communities. Roughly 3,750 local volunteers have been trained as leaders to steer change in their communities.

WaterAid uses Microsoft’s Power BI tool to monitor data from variable geographies and themes. Visuals in it are user-friendly tools to analyse and visualise data. The management can navigate across multiple layers smoothly with the aid of interactive visuals to assess progress and gaps making it easy to communicate complex and analytical data with multiple audience groups.
