WASH & Learn! Sustainable WASH Services for Schools & Communities
Simavi & Aqua for All jointly worked on sustainable WASH services for Schools & Communities in the ‘WASH and Learn!’ program. We co-financed the program and focused on ensuring long term functionality of the facilities. Girls and boys, teachers and parents jointly learned how to handle issues like Menstrual Hygiene Management, breaking the silence regarding this taboo and make insights very practical by learning how to make menstrual pads. School Health Clubs have proven to be a great vehicle to organize the school community to undertake income generating activities, like gardening for paying the water bill & maintenance of facilities. To share lessons learned, two ‘Learning Briefs’ were published regarding the experience with Sustainability Tools and with School Health Clubs and Menstrual Hygiene Management.
One of our key programs is VIA Water
