Water For People adopted the "Everyone, Forever" approach. IRC carried out a case study to learn lessons on scaling-up rural water and sanitation services.
The NGO Water For People had been working on sporadic water and sanitation projects in Honduras since 1998 without seeing the kind of impact they wanted. In 2006 they changed their approach to concentrate on achieving full water and sanitation coverage in a just few municipalities, enabling them to achieve economies of scale, leverage the efforts of other organisations active in those areas, and build up the supporting institutions that would ensure sustainability. This approach is reflected in the organisation's slogan 'Everyone, Forever'. This case study describes the application of this approach
in the municipality of Chinda, Honduras.
