Swash plus : baseline report

In June 2007, the Center for Global Safe Water at Emory University (CGSW) in collaboration with CARE USA, CARE Kenya, Great Lakes University of Kenya (GLUK), Millennium Water Alliance (MWA), Sustainable Aid in Africa International (SANA), and Water Partners International (WPI), completed a baseline survey of school enrollment and water and sanitation infrastructure for the project Sustaining and Scaling School Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Plus Community Impacts (SWASH+) in Nyanza Province, Kenya. The first three years of SWASH+ are led by an applied research agenda. This applied research is intended to document impacts of the project on the health and educational attainment of school children and the health of children under the age of five in associated communities. In order to document impacts in schools and communities, school- and community-based improvements have been implemented in a series of packages. All schools included in the applied research phase will receive the base packages. In addition to the three identified packages, two additional packages are included in the SWASH+ project: a school-based water package (typically rainwater harvesting) and a community-based hygiene and point-of-use water treatment promotion program implemented a select number of district health facilities.

This is a SWASH+ -output.

Abstract

In June 2007, the Center for Global Safe Water at Emory University (CGSW) in collaboration with CARE USA, CARE Kenya, Great Lakes University of Kenya (GLUK), Millennium Water Alliance (MWA), Sustainable Aid in Africa International (SANA), and Water Partners International (WPI), completed a baseline survey of school enrollment and water and sanitation infrastructure for the project Sustaining and Scaling School Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Plus Community Impacts (SWASH+) in Nyanza Province, Kenya. The first three years of SWASH+ are led by an applied research agenda. This applied research is intended to document impacts of the project on the health and educational attainment of school children and the health of children under the age of five in associated communities. In order to document impacts in schools and communities, school- and community-based improvements have been implemented in a series of packages. All schools included in the applied research phase will receive the base packages. In addition to the three identified packages, two additional packages are included in the SWASH+ project: a school-based water package (typically rainwater harvesting) and a community-based hygiene and point-of-use water treatment promotion program implemented a select number of district health facilities.
