EA in partnership with Water Aid is implementing project on Water Sanitation and Hygiene titled Sustainable WASH (SusWASH) strengthening project. This project also supports KCCA directorates for Health, Education and Strategic Planning to include elements that strengthen the sustainability of WASH services within their current plans.
This project mainly focuses on two areas:
- Strengthening of School WASH structures including SMCs to support sustainability and ensure that WASH services are inclusive especially for women and girls;
- Capacities strengthening of school WASH structures through tailor-made trainings on sustainability of service provision. At the community level, through mobilising community members and local leaders to spearhead the scale-up of improved sanitation facilities through targeted behaviour change campaigns and dialogues.
One of the project objectives is to develop Capacity of schools for inclusive and sustainable WASH. In this objective, there are outputs i.e.
- At least 05 school WASH clubs established and/or revived for promotion of sanitation and hygiene best practice.
- Conduct innovative hygiene behaviour change communication in 05 schools.
It’s against this background that EA intends to conduct a joint reflection meeting with school WASH clubs to understand their leadership dynamics and bottlenecks for effective performance in each school and; also with head teachers to discuss and agree on key messages for WASH talking compounds and talking toilet walls. This will inform the subsequent actions to address the challenges of the school WASH clubs but also provide guidance on the kind of messages for the final design of WASH talking compounds and toilet walls.
