GSF partners in action: Boosting WASH for schools and communities in Malawi

Global Sanitation Fund
“In the past, pupils used to skip classes as well as get sick very often. Pupils who would come to school one day were usually not the same ones the next day. And again, some of the girl students approaching adolescence were mostly shy at school when menstruating since there was no proper structures to support them. As a result, many of them dropped out.” In the open defecation free (ODF) Traditional Authority of Mwadzama, a Plan International project under the GSF-supported programme in Malawi has boosted water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in schools. The project ensured the installation of boreholes and improved latrines, established school wash clubs and competitions, and supported community sanitation and hygiene campaigns. Since the start of the project school enrollment has also increased, which may be linked to project’s outputs.

Value for Money Study in Global Sanitation Fund Programmes – Synthesis Report

Global Sanitation Fund
With maturing programmes and results steadily growing, the GSF is not only interested in the real cost of reaching results, but also in deepening its understanding of resources invested by communities, governments, and other partners. This is critical in further developing a model for scaling up sanitation and hygiene. With these aspects in mind, a multi-country value for money study was commissioned by the GSF in 2015, and carried out by Oxford Policy Management. This synthesis report explores the methodology and findings from the study. Moreover, it provides recommendations on the methodology which the GSF can utilize to track better value for money aspects within supported programmes.

Sanitation Action Summit 2016 - Programme

Equality
Is everyone able to use safe and decent facilities all of the time? What about when they leave their household? When they have had an accident or have a disabled family member? How many blind people are able to participate in a community based sanitation triggering? Does the benefit of improved access to toilets also come with a de facto responsibility to manage one’s own excreta? Women and girls menstruate. How will we break the silence on an issue shrouded in shame and secrecy for centuries? How to ensure pride in one’s own body, the ability to talk without shame and demand safe facilities? These are just a few of the questions that will be explored by government, representatives from marginalized communities, academia, private sector, development partners and global citizens during the Sanitation Action Summit in Mumbai on 18 November.
