Addis Ababa Education Bureau, supported by Splash have set themselves the task to supply all 483 government schools in Addis Ababa with safe water, good sanitation and good hygiene services, based on the model that Splash has developed worldwide.
Splash has partnered with IRC WASH to understand the life cycle costs of these interventions. The Life Cycle Cost Approach (LCCA) captures the costs/expenses that are needed to keep services running.
The report and findings are based on data and information collected in 2019 through interviews with stakeholders, Splash staff and a survey of 40 schools of sites where interventions have taken place.
The initial investment, or capital expenditure (CapEx) was found to be ETB 886 (USD 29.5) per student. Of this, 86% is regarded as hardware intervention (CapEx hardware) and 14% CapEx software such as mobilisation and awareness raising. The bulk of the capital investments go towards sanitation (60%), followed by drinking water (33%) and hygiene (6%).
