Many schools, particularly those in rural areas, often completely lack safe drinking-water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education. If WASH facilities are absent, or are badly maintained or used in a school, students are at risk for diseases to be transmitted. Girls suffer more because of inadequate sanitation and privacy concern during their menstruation period, which forces many school girls to be absent from school, and increase school drop-out (WHO, 2009, Lidonde, 2004).
This grant intends to improve the WASH in 10-13 public schools in the Lalitpur District of Nepal in a comprehensive and sustainable manner. Over 6000 students could benefit from this project. We plan to start the project in December and complete the hardware part within 5 months. The initial software part would be competed within 5 months as well but long term monitoring would continue over a period of 3-5 years to ensure the sustainability of the interventions.
