My experience managing the Operation Hygiene project in Chipole, Tanzania was a stark contrast to my previous work in Switzerland and Europe.
Operation Hygiene was a project aimed at improving hygiene and sanitation conditions in Chipole, Tanzania, particularly for orphans who lacked access to basic resources. The key performance indicators (KPIs) for the project were the number of sanitation facilities installed, the number of individuals reached, and the impact on the reduction of waterborne diseases in the community. The project also focused on providing education and training on hygiene practices to the local community. The ultimate goal was to improve the health and well-being of the community members by providing them with access to clean water and sanitation facilities. This project provided me with valuable cross-cultural communication skills and taught me how to develop resilience in challenging environments. By improving the living conditions and health of the orphans in the area, I was able to make a positive impact towards SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) and SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being). Working in Sub-Saharan Africa also exposed me to unique challenges and taught me how to adapt and work closely with local communities on the ground.
