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.
