Clean drinking water and access to a toilet and hand washing facilities are fundamental rights of every human being. While providing universal access to WASH technologies is difficult to achieve, we strive to ensure that the students in our sphere of influence have all the benefits of functioning WASH technologies and systems.
School WASH systems have the unique feature of providing benefits to multiple generations of students, as our high-quality WASH program ensures that the WASH systems function for the longterm. Additionally, with our WASH education program, students also bring their new WASH knowledge back to their homes and communities. In sum, WASH at schools is a high-impact project that improves the quality of education children receive, brings multiple health benefits, and gives children essential knowledge and experience that will serve them for a lifetime.
Depending on the number of students and the local circumstances, we equip schools with the WASH technologies and systems described below. The required budgets for schools with 50 to 500 pupils are usually between €7,000 and €20,000.
If you, your family, your club, or your company are looking for a way to help a lot of disadvantaged children quickly, effectively, and sustainably, funding a school WASH project is undoubtedly the way to go.
