Thinking big: Using school water, sanitation and hygiene for nation-wide change

Updated - Thursday 16 August 2012

Many primary schools throughout Nyanza Province in Kenya lack access to safe water and sanitary latrines. In order to support nation-wide change in school WASH conditions, the SWASH+ project used a rigorous research design to evaluate what interventions for school water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) were most effective. These research findings were used to influence the Kenyan government to increase funding for school WASH and implement sustainable solutions for WASH in schools across Kenya.
