This Omdena Local Chapter Challenge runs for 6 weeks and is a unique experience to try and grow your skills in a collaborative and safe environment with a diverse mix of people from all over the world.

You will work on solving a local problem, initiated by the Omdena Port Harcourt, Nigeria Chapter.

The problem

Improve access to WASH services (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) for displaced persons and vulnerable host communities to reduce susceptivity to waterborne diseases and improve livelihoods. More than one million people have been displaced in the region of focus.

Strengthen livelihoods and resilience among households and increase sustainable access to WASH services.

The project goals

Covering the current infrastructure situation of WASH services.


  • Have a few surveys, reports, and other data sources but no centralized data pool.
  • No experience with satellite imagery (but open to exploring).
  • Currently talking to other CSOs and data partners to collect more data.
  • So more data can be collected in November & December.
