Exploring the Potential of Schoolchildren as Change Agents in the Context of School WASH in Rural Zambia: Final Report

July 2014 — Access to adequate water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) at school has been shown to improve health of pupils and increase school attendance. Interventions that target the school can also serve as an entry point to improve WASH access at home. In this study, conducted through the school-based WASH program, SPLASH, and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, we explored the potential for children to be change agents for behavior change and technology adoption in their households.
