Domestos Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Future School Sanitation Programme

No Comments

The previous project, Piloting and Refining and School Sanitation Management Model has now expanded to include 150 schools under Domestos’ “Cleaner Toilets, Brighter Futures” programme. Learnings from the much smaller pilot programme have been incorporated into this new programme, in which Domestos and PID are providing the following services to schools: 1. We train school cleaners and principals about why school sanitation matters and how to properly manage their school sanitation through regular cleaning, monitoring, and administrative procedures. 2. Schools receive necessary cleaning supplies and safety gear for 6 months to do the job effectively. 3. Schools receive ongoing support from PID’s team of fieldworkers who assist them in addressing their specific struggles, whether that is learner behaviour, financial constraints, or others. The goal of the programme is that school cleaners, principals, staff, and learners are empowered to manage their school sanitation better, which will ultimately lead to more safe, healthy, and dignified toilets for learners. Furthermore, Domestos hopes to capacitate Department of Education officials to take ownership of this programme in the long run. We have been working closely with the District and Provincial Departments of Education in order to implement this programme on the ground. This pilot will last through the end of the 2018 school year.
