WAVE’s work and programs have helped us build new dialogues and amplify trust among the communities that live around Lake Tanganyika, as well as working relationships with the many national and provincial governments in the four lakeside nations.

These contacts place us in a unique position to provide advice on issues far beyond health care delivery taking in the complex relationships between the Great Lakes’ transboundary countries.

WAVE has already built and is now extending its networks of influence, contacts and local knowledge. This has made us a prime go-to source for any interested donor governments, philanthropists, non-profit organizations and multinational corporations that need to understand the complexities and risks across the Lake Tanganyika Basin and its relationship to the whole of the Great Lakes.

Working closely with diverse partners at the local, regional, national and international WAVE has forged the deep alliances that can change lives.
