SWASH-plus conducts learning and applied research designed to generate strategic information on school water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) that can influence policy and practice and result in greater impacts and sustainability. The project is undertaking a new strategic direction that would focus on collaborative learning with the Ministry of Education and other relevant line ministries to develop a scalable model for school WASH in Kenya. In keeping with trends towards devolved funding, this collaboration examines the Kenyan Education Sector Support Program (KESSP) through the School Infrastructure Improvement Program (SIIP) and will pilot test a set of enhancements to the current KESSP approach. Within KESSP, SIIP is a program that aims at assisting Kenya’s poorest schools and communities to improve their primary school infrastructure. In this program, primary schools, selected based on need and  priority, receive an annual infrastructure improvement grant each year for five years. This grant is known as Basic School Infrastructure Improvement Grant (BSIIG). In addition to BSIIG, some schools with have severe shortage of infrastructural provision receive a one-off grant in order to carry out more extensive infrastructural development or rehabilitation works.
