Sierra Leone: Rural WASH in Schools Programme

NestBuilders International (NBI), an international development research consulting firm, was contracted by UNICEF Sierra Leone to carry out a baseline study to collect information on the WASH situation in schools across six districts in Sierra Leone. Across the entire six districts, not one school meets the ‘WASH is Schools standard’. The trends and analysis have been outlined throughout this report and one thing is clear: developing child-friendly WASH in schools is a matter of urgency. With no schools currently up to standard, and the majority lacking facilities, with little to no governance of WASH in schools there is a large gap between the current status and the envisioned outcomes of the WASH in Schools Programme.
