The WASH action combines short-term emergency response and more durable and cost-effective systems. The emergency response is implemented thanks to the provision of clean water with water trucking, pending the completion of the works planned towards more sustainable solutions. The rehabilitation of 7 water systems aims at expanding the access to life-saving water supply services in a sustainable manner, in places that have been damaged by the conflict. Some boreholes are equipped with solar panels to compensate for the fuel shortages in the country. TGH is also coordinating with water authorities, stakeholders and donors to equip and rehabilitate pumping stations and sewage network in order to ensure the quality of the water that will be pumped.
Concerning the education component of this project, TGH is ensuring a safe and effective access to formal school for the most vulnerable children by ensuring light rehabilitation of 9 schools. In the 13 other supported schools, TGH ensures the small maintenance and repairs of the latrine blocks already existing, to ensure that children in the schools have continuous access to the facilities. TGH is also organizing Hygiene Promotion sessions at schools and provision of hygiene items, delivered by SARC volunteers under the supervision of TGH staff. Recreational and educational materials, small equipment and school kits are also distributed in the schools. TGH is providing capacity building to the teachers carrying out Non-Formal Education sessions. In addition to these Education activities, protection in education is also part of this project through the implementation of Back-to-learning campaigns in each targeted location. Non-Formal Education directed to out-of-school children and children at risk of dropping out is dispensed, as well as Psycho-Social Support sessions. Case management and referrals of identified cases to specialized services or other relevant assistance providers are implemented.
