Water, Environment and Sanitation Society (WESS) is a non-profit, non-political, non-government development organization dedicated to bring lasting improvements in the quality of life of the poorest communities in Balochistan. WESS was established as an independent NGO in July 1999 and is registered with the Government of Balochistan, under the Societies Registration Act. A team of veterans and highly qualified professionals steer WESS towards achievement of its strategic programmes of Environmental health, Child rights and Child protection, Education, Community Development, Economic and Social Empowerment of marginalized communities and Humanitarian assistance during disasters or displacement. The organization adopts participatory and rights based approach to development in pursuit of all its development endeavours, for we believe that without participation and active involvement of people no change theory can ever be materialized. The Organization, since its inception has successfully implemented around 88 projects (both in development and humanitarian sector) in 24 districts, enabled it to reach around two millions beneficiaries in the province of Balochistan. The vast experience of WESS resulted to develop a robust and rewarding partnerships with numerous key national/international actors that give a lead edge to the organization to stand tall and confident on its developed competencies.
