Ernest Randriarimalala, our Voices from the Field Officer in Madagascar, has taken to the radiowaves to help mark the launch of the Global Goals – which aim to end extreme poverty by 2030.

Ernest's appearance on Radio Everyone takes listeners on a journey through remote Madagascar, to highlight the importance of safe, clean water and toilets in creating a healthier, more sustainable world.

The water segment, which is hosted by retired footballer Fabrice Muamba, also features WaterAid Nepal's partner, Pema Lhaki, who talks about the challenges surrounding periods and menstrual hygiene for girls and women in Nepal.
