Abstract: This paper shows how addressing gender in water supply and sanitation projects can improve the well being of society at large. The study was carried out in Ward 22, Chipinge district in Manicaland province, Zimbabwe. Interviews and group discussions were held with community people, Rural District Council personnel and UNICEF personnel. Community-based Management of water supply and sanitation in the Ward was a success because of the meaningful contribution of both men and women. This led to empowerment of women, effectiveness and efficiency, increased coverage, community development among other positive impacts. This paper concludes that meaningful participation of both gender groups in community water supply projects is quite pivotal in ensuring effective development and should be encouraged at all levels.
