WASH in Schools

The WASH Foundation, an evolution of Clean the World Foundation, operates a WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) education program in the Dominican Republic where we partner with four schools to provide handwashing stations, education, and soap to students and staff. The WASH Foundation has built, maintained, and provided programs in these schools since 2019.

The program provides education to school-age children on hygiene and sanitation through proper handwashing, which they then share with their families at home. We currently serve 1,500 students in the community and plan to enter six more schools by the end of 2023.
