SHF operates in the space where the development and finance worlds intersect, looking to assist countries to navigate and benefit from innovative financing opportunities therein.
Through our strategy, we pursue four main strategic areas where we believe financing can be attracted:
- Scaling-up household sanitation and hygiene services - these are usually off-grid, non-sewered solutions;
- Addressing menstrual health and hygiene gaps, promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls;
- Increasing sustainable water, sanitation, hygiene and MHH services in schools and health care facilities; and
- Supporting all forms of innovation which work towards providing access to safely managed services for all.
In early 2022, we have started engagement with governments and sector partners in Benin, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Uganda.
