Project

Schools Promoting Learning Achievement through Sanitation and Hygiene (SPLASH)

Schools Promoting Learning Achievement through Sanitation and Hygiene (SPLASH) aims to improve health and learning among primary school pupils in four districts in Zambia’s Eastern Province (Chadiza, Chipata, Lundazi, and Mambwe districts). SPLASH works within existing structures and systems of the Ministry of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education, as well as other ministries such as the Ministry of Local Government and Housing and the Ministry of Health. SPLASH works to improve the health, learning and educational performance of primary school children and their teachers by improving sustainable access to safe water and adequate sanitation. The project also encourages adoption of better hygiene and health practices in targeted schools and communities. SPLASH is implemented by the global environmental health project WASHplus, which is led by FHI 360 in partnership with CARE and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.
