Wonderful WASH work


OFID’s 2019 Annual Award for Development recognizes Vida Duti’s remarkable water and sanitation work in Ghana


T 38


he 2019 OFID Annual Award for Development has been conferred upon Vida Duti, in recognition of her remarkable work in striving for sustainable water, sanitation and


hygiene (WASH) services for the population of Ghana. Duti, who is Country Director of the IRC


International Water and Sanitation Centre in Ghana, will receive US$100,000 from OFID in recognition. Duti leads a team of 12 in Ghana. The team’s


priority is advocating for greater financial and political support for WASH, while also supporting national government policies, standards and guidelines. Its priority in its partner district, Asutifi North, is to support the roll out of a WASH ‘master plan.’ This plan aims to provide universal WASH services for the entire population of the Asutifi district by 2030. Currently, only around half of the district’s 62,816 people have access to adequate water facilities and just 15 percent to decent sanitation. The project’s coalition includes local government, World Vision, the Conrad N Hilton Foundation,


Safe Water Network and non-profit organization Aquaya. Duti said she was humbled to receive the


award and that it would “motivate and strengthen my resolve” to work harder to improve the quality of life of people in the developing world. She attended a presentation ceremony at OFID’s headquarters to receive her prize. OFID Director-General Dr Abdulhamid


Alkhalifa said: “OFID recognizes the important role women play in the WASH sector, advancing solutions and encouraging behavioral change. Vida Duti’s engagement in this sector is exemplary and is helping to deliver access to safe, reliable and affordable water services to numerous people in Ghana. “OFID hopes that bestowing this year’s


Annual Award for Development to Mrs Duti will help accelerate action in sub-Saharan Africa, encourage the many women working in development, and highlight the important issues of safe water and hygiene.”
