The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), an implementing agency of Japan’s Official Development Assistance (ODA), has continuously dispatched the Water Security Action Team(W-SAT) for 15 years since 2008 as young volunteers to improve water and sanitation in Africa. By the end of May 2023, a cumulative total of 294 volunteers had been dispatched to 21 countries, and 20 are currently active in 9 countries. W-SAT members live with local communities, understand their needs, and work to solve their problems with their free perspectives. We would like to introduce a unique initiative and innovation originated by Japanese youth in this W-SAT.
