This paper aims to share Oxfam GB’s experience of working in partnership with local authorities, communities and other organisations to provide WASH facilities to villages and schools, using low-cost water technologies. In Mali, a pilot project has introduced the rope pump – a new, low-cost, easy-to-maintain type of technology, which has increased access to water and contributed to an increase in enrolment and better child health. This case study is part of a series designed to illustrate how Oxfam GB has been working with partner organisations, schools and communities to integrate water, sanitation and hygiene into education programmes to tackle some of the biggest obstacles that prevent children from going to school.
