The MDGs are international target to half the World Poverty by 2015 or to reduce the world poverty by half.

WASH is an acronym used to represent “Water Sanitation and Hygiene” projects.. Originally it is called WES (Water and Environmental Sanitation) but as at 2007, after the UN has realized that any Water and Sanitation project without Hygiene Education is not completed and would not be sustainable, they adopted the acronym that incorporate hygiene into the existing one. It is an integral part of the MDGs.
