The national community water and sanitation programme (CWSP) of Ghana was designed to work through the private sector for the provision of all goods and services. Specifically, it is central to the CWSP’s approach to contract Partner Organizations (PO’s) to assist communities in developing their own capabilities, provide technical
assistance and deliver hygiene education. A PO, under the CWSP concept is supposed to be a small village or district level association oriented towards self help activities under contract (Project Preparation Contract)
to provide planning and organisational service support to communities to enable the communities plan their own water supply and sanitation facilities.
