Integrated Regional Support Program (IRSP), an End Water Poverty (EWP) member which also coordinates Fresh Water Action Network – South Asia (FANSA) in Pakistan, has won a $50,000 prize for its work on water and sanitation in the country.

IRSP, which also collected thousands of signatures for the 1.8 million Keep Your Promises petition, was named runner-up in the Star Impact Award, WASH category, Asia-Pacific. As part of the prize package, IRSP will receive US$50,000 of unrestricted funding, US$10,000 in tailored consultancy and a package of media support.
The Stars Impact Awards recognises and rewards outstanding local organisations that are improving the lives of children in the countries with highest rates of under-five mortality. IRSP was selected from more than 160 competing organisations. IRSP director Shah Nasir Khisro received the award from former US President Bill Clinton at a ceremony in London this month.

IRSP works to empower and bring development to local communities in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province and Southern Punjab. It acts as a WASH resource centre and the leading agency in the implementation of two approaches to hygiene and sanitation in Pakistan: Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) and Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM).
“Every day, these winners prove the power and potential of local responses to global challenges. I am inspired by their work and look forward to seeing the enormous impact they will surely achieve in the future,” said Clinton.
