"Over the past year I have been working with WaterAid to revamp the Inclusive WaSH website. Our aim? To reignite an online space that promotes current best practice in inclusive water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) – inspiring learning and innovation across the sector globally as we work towards addressing barriers so that everyone everywhere has access to WaSH.
This week marks International Day of People with Disability, so I thought I’d shamelessly plug the website to show how important water and sanitation is to realising the human rights of people with disabilities: http://www.inclusivewash.org.au/
Since its inception four years ago, the website has had a diverse geographical reach – it is a great platform and we were excited to be able to bring new life to it! "
