In Partnership with WaterAid Sierra Leone and Liberia, the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Network (WASH-Net) of Sierra Leone was officially launched on 15 February 2012, together with the WASH Manifesto Campaign by the Deputy Ministry of Energy and Water Resources at the British Council Auditorium.

Attended by members of the civil society, media, political parties, development partners and key ministries, agencies and departments, WASH-Net through its members nationwide further succeeded in attracting attendance and representation  from numerous local councils across Sierra Leone.

2012 is a critical year for Sierra Leone’s development; shaping the country’s political direction through the forthcoming elections on 27 November. As such this is an opportunity to engage a powerful citizen’s engagement movement that makes voices and votes count in elections; in other words, using elections as tools to demand commitments that ushers much-needed change within the WASH sector.
