Thank you for the continued interest you have shown in WSSCC’s mission to increase equitable access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) for all. With collaboration at the heart of our approach, WSSCC aims to harness the voice, insight and expertise of members like you who provide us with the capacity and direction we need to carry out our work. As we reflect on our work over the last 25 years, we would like to reaffirm our dedication to the individuals and organizations that constitute the WSSCC membership.
Together, we have empowered millions to end the practice of open defecation and to gain access to improved sanitation. With the valuable support and input of members like you, we can do even more. One important way in which we can support our members is through the new WSSCC Members’ Community. This Members’ Community is an online directory, listing all members, where you can also connect and collaborate. This is our response to your requests for us to facilitate more learning and sharing of experiences and best practices across different countries and contexts. At this time, we would like to invite you to update your member profile on the WSSCC Members’ Community.
To update your member profile:
1. Accept the invitation to the SharePoint Members’ Community by clicking on the ‘Go to WSSCC Members Community Site’ link which was sent to you in a separate e-mail via the Microsoft Online Services Team
Please log-out of any Microsoft e-mail account that you may be signed into, before clicking the link. If the e-mail account currently associated with your WSSCC membership, where you have received this e-mail, is already a Microsoft Live/Microsoft 365 account (i.e. Outlook, Hotmail) then you can sign-in directly to the Members’ Community by entering the existing e-mail and password for that Microsoft account upon accepting the invitation.
If you do not already have a Microsoft account, either personal or assigned by your organization, you will see the option to create a Microsoft ID (e-mail and password) at the sign-in page for the Members’ Community. It reads “Don’t have a Microsoft account? Sign up now”. If you have difficulties seeing this option, you can also create a Microsoft account by clicking here (English). You can use any e-mail and password as the user ID for your convenience. For example, if you currently have a Gmail account such as firstname.lastname@example.org, you can use this same e-mail as the user name for your new Microsoft account and select the same password you already use for your Gmail to make it easy for you to remember.
2. Once signed in, please take a few minutes to go to through your individual profile and review, update and save your contact details.
When entering your contact details in the Members’ Community, please pay particular attention to all mandatory fields under the ‘basic details’ tab which must be completed before saving your changes.
In order to continue to make gains and extend our reach, we need your involvement and support! We look forward to a continued and strengthened partnership.
