Collaboration with Evidence Action
Evidence Action, a non-profit that scales proven development solutions throughout the globe, is focused on providing clean water throughout East Africa via chlorine dispensers, but had found a disconcerting, growing gap between awareness of these dispensers and their ultimate adoption, particularly in Uganda. They asked us to help them better understand perceptions around water treatment before implementing a test program to measurably increase usage of chlorine in drinking water.
Bridging the Awareness Gap
Our task was to bridge the gap between chlorine dispenser awareness and practice by more fully harnessing the powerful passion of the community and paving a path free of fears and burdensome changes to daily routines.
Steady Increase in Adoption
While there is still a long way to go in making clean water consistently available throughout Uganda, the initial results are encouraging and show that small changes in perception and habits can lead to profound improvements in health.
Implementation based on the research plan led to a 30% increase in adoption.
