Outline India undertook a project to gauge problems faced by adolescent girls and CWSN (Children with special needs) in the context of WASH facilities in schools across the states of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand.
Considering the trickle-down effect of certain policies, Outline India sought to identify success factors and lacunae in project implementation. The core focus of the study was on access to WASH infrastructure for adolescent girls and children with disabilities. Accounting for the usage of water and sanitation facilities in school, Outline India explored whether what is being defined as ‘usable’, is adequately addressing the child’s needs. The study also analysed the correlation between the enrollment of CWSN and dropout rates with the presence of adequate, suitable and usable WASH infrastructure in public schools.
