Social Service Delivery

Our approach to social service delivery focuses on closing the gaps between needs, policy and performance to ensure the social service needs of a population are met in a responsive, accountable, and sustainable manner. Cowater has delivered large-scale development initiatives related to community and rural development programs improving citizen engagement for gender responsive, accountable, and improved social service delivery, including health care, water services, and education.

Cowater is committed to gender equality, women’s empowerment and women’s rights. We recognize that gender inequality creates barriers and disadvantages in all sectors and we strive to address these through interventions designed to promote empowerment and equality in social service delivery.
