Schools Sanitation Projects

After the first democratic elections in 1994, the government of South Africa was faced with the challenge of providing a basic level of sanitation services to areas neglected by the previous government.
At that time, service delivery was fragmented with no cohesive strategy or support structures to guide the provision of sanitation
This was a period characterised by few sanitation services to rural households, farm dwellers and especially schools, and where there was service provision – it was in a state of disrepair owing to the lack of consultation and a lack of a sense of ownership from the end users.
Implementation of sanitation interventions was mainly focused on service delivery with little or no health and hygiene education, thus no measurements were made to see the impacts of sanitation service delivery.
Our organisation is committed – in line with government objectives, to ensuring that learners have access to adequate sanitation.
