Poor water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) conditions hinder the potential of many school children in Sub-Saharan Africa. This happens even though, for example, the access to clear water is a human right. The issue is big, but it calls for a solution that is simple, locally implementable and yet globally scalable. This is the challenge our team is set to take on.
Our methods rely strongly on the end users – Ugandan primary school students – as we need their help in both understanding and solving the issues at hand. We are looking for an African solution for an African challenge.
We’re altogether 30 students from three universities and four continents. We work in 3 teams: one from the PDP course and two from the IDBM master’s programme. Read more about our adventures at wash14.pdp.fi!
