Abstract: Poverty, illiteracy, poor personal and environmental hygiene, malnutrition, lack of access to basic social services, like water and sanitation, characterize the slum areas of Addis Ababa, resulting in high morbidity, disability and mortality specifically for women and children. By taking these factors into account, Cheshire Foundation Action for Inclusion (CFAI) implemented a three year WASH project funded by WaterCan starting in 2009. The project targeted the most marginalized groups in the selected communities, specifically people with disabilities. This paper highlights the impact that WASH activities can have in promoting the economic wellbeing of people with disabilities, specifically in the communities of Anbessa Garage and Kore in Addis Ababa.
