And we never give up.
For every child, a calling
Following
the findings and gaps established from a comprehensive national school
WASH assessment on WASH services conducted in 2018/19 by the National
Bureau Statistics with financial and technical support from UNICEF, key
sector stakeholders recommended the development of a national costed
plan of action and investment case. Responding to this call, UNICEF
engaged Oxford Policy Management (OPM) to closely work with the relevant
ministries responsible for education, school health and governance of
school to develop a national costed plan of action and investment case
for Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar to provide the government of Tanzania
and sector partners with an evidence-based information of the economic
case for increased investment in School WASH (SWASH) services and guide
future decision making on SWASH investments and implementation at scale.
OPM successfully completed and submitted the reports which have been
validated by the Government and planned for launching later this year.
The economic analysis performed during implementation of this assignment
utilizing data from the 2015 Education Management Information System
and 2017/2018 Household Budget Survey indicate that access to adequate
WASH services in schools plays a significant role in keeping children in
school for longer. The analysis clearly demonstrates that the amount of
time a child stays in school has a significant impact on their future
earning potential. As a result of the relationship between access to
adequate WASH and effecting schooling, the analysis suggests that on
average access to the standard package1 of school WASH services could
lead to 2.5 percent increase average lifetime earnings in rural areas
and over a 4 percent increase in urban areas. The analysis further shows
the cost of action and inaction for investing or not investing in
SWASH. To ensure that the findings from the study is widely shared and
contribute to advancing the agenda for the rights of children to WASH
and education, UNICEF Tanzania is looking for an individual consultant
to review and synthesize the key findings and produce a research paper
to the specifications of a journal article or working paper.
