Strengthening Community and Local Capacities for the production of hygienic products and protective equipment to fight against COVID19 in Africa

To actively seek to counter the negative effects of COVID-19 and mitigating its repercussions, Alwaleed Philanthropies "Global" collaborated with ICESCO to strengthen Community and Local Capacity for making hygiene products and protective equipment to fight against COVID-19 in Africa.

This project will focus on the already existing initiatives in a view to financially and technically support developing the immediate local units to produce hygienic products and create equipment to protect the sanitation system and water supply system for the populations.

  • Building sustainable capacities for hygienic and protective equipment that goes beyond the COVID-19 crisis.
  • Providing financial support to the actors of the informal and local sector to make up for the loss of revenues in order to mitigate the economic consequences of the crisis.
  • Empowering women and youth entrepreneurs by making them key actors in the response to COVID-19.
