Kenya’s KESSP school infrastructure improvement program: an assessment of roles and responsibilities

The SWASH+ program has identified the Kenya Education Sector Support Programme (KESSP) as a potential mechanism for scaling up school water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and has been working with the Ministry of Education (MoE) to learn about this process and its challenges. Given the many seemingly complex roles involved in KESSP, we set out to interview those who had previously been involved in a KESSP project to understand how school, community, and district‐level actors perceive and take on their roles and responsibilities vis a vis the roles defined in the program’s guidelines, and to document challenges that they experience. Our interviews demonstrated that although some roles and responsibilities were well adopted by the appropriate people, there are several areas where a lack of clarity about roles, responsibilities, or procedures impaired progress or caused disagreements. This is a two-page document with the interview findings. [authors abstract]

This is a SWASH+ -output.

Abstract

The SWASH+ program has identified the Kenya Education Sector Support Programme (KESSP) as a potential mechanism for scaling up school water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and has been working with the Ministry of Education (MoE) to learn about this process and its challenges. Given the many seemingly complex roles involved in KESSP, we set out to interview those who had previously been involved in a KESSP project to understand how school, community, and district‐level actors perceive and take on their roles and responsibilities vis a vis the roles defined in the program’s guidelines, and to document challenges that they experience. Our interviews demonstrated that although some roles and responsibilities were well adopted by the appropriate people, there are several areas where a lack of clarity about roles, responsibilities, or procedures impaired progress or caused disagreements. This is a two-page document with the interview findings. [authors abstract]

This is a SWASH+ -output.
