In the context of learning, SWASH+ provides water sources such as boreholes or rainwater harvesting systems; gives schools chlorine solution for water treatment; builds latrines; provides hand washing facilities; and trains school management committees, teachers, and pupils on best practices for school WASH such as water treatment, hand washing, and latrine maintenance. As a learning and applied research project, SWASH+ is a five-year initiative, designed to generate strategic information on school WASH that can influence policy and practice, resulting in greater impacts or increased efficiency over time. CARE, Kenya Water and Health Organization (KWAHO) and Water Partners International (WPI) lead on implementation of WASH interventions and government engagement, while Emory University and the Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK) lead the research component.  The research component comprises a randomized and controlled study involving extensive surveying in 185 schools with over 10,000 pupils and almost 5,000 households in the surrounding communities.  In addition, SWASH+ carries out smaller qualitative sub-studies to explore specific questions or challenges.
