WASH & Learn!

The ‘WASH and Learn!’ programme integrates community and school WASH projects in three adjacent countries; Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Simavi will implement this WASH in Schools programme together with six local NGO partners. It is a three-year programme which runs from 2016 to 2018. WASH and Learn! is funded through the event Walking for Water 2016-2018, an awareness and fundraising initiative with Dutch school children. Aqua for All is contributing 80% of the money raised by the Walking for Water campaign. The Rotary District 1570 is another contributor to the programme. On this website, findings from the programme will be shared with the wider WASH in Schools community.

Podcast on Menstrual Health

This IRC podcast called WASH Talk deals with menstrual health. A topic that is still suffering from many taboos and is seriously neglected in government policies. The Sustainable Development Goals fail to mention menstrual health specifically in their targets and indicators. A sad omission as this really is a global human issue.
