School wash

implementation approach

Feat Africa’s School Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WaSH) survey program is a proactive initiative aimed at improving the health and well-being of students by addressing sanitation and hygiene issues in schools. The program begins with the training of a team of leaders comprising various school staff members, including teachers, administrators, and support staff. These leaders undergo comprehensive training sessions that equip them with the knowledge and skills necessary to assess and address WaSH-related challenges effectively.

Following their training, the leaders form groups and collaborate to select schools within the community where sanitation and hygiene issues are particularly alarming. Using a systematic approach, the teams conduct thorough surveys to evaluate the magnitude of the problems affecting each school. They assess various aspects of WaSH infrastructure, such as the availability of clean water sources, the condition of sanitation facilities, and the implementation of hygiene practices. Additionally, they gather data on factors contributing to poor WaSH conditions, such as inadequate funding, lack of maintenance, or insufficient awareness.

Once the surveys are completed, the teams compile their findings and assist in reporting the magnitude of the identified problems to relevant stakeholders, including school authorities, local government officials, and Feat Africa staff. This comprehensive reporting helps to raise awareness about the urgent need for improvements in WaSH infrastructure and practices within schools. By actively engaging with the community and advocating for change, Feat Africa’s School WaSH survey program plays a crucial role in promoting a safe and healthy learning environment for students, ultimately contributing to their academic success and overall well-being.
