Nigeria Programme Overview

The Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion in Nigeria (RUSHPIN) programme aims to support over two million people to improve their sanitation and hygiene practices. Six Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Cross River and Benue states are covered by the programme. RUSHPIN is intended to be a catalyst for achieving complete sanitation coverage in these states. The NGO United Purpose is the Executing Agency (EA) and Sub-grantees are state organizations, LGA WASH Units and NGOs. The Programme Coordinating Mechanism is chaired by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources.
