All over the world girls are at risk because of their young age and their gender. They are at risk of being denied the opportunity to access a secondary education, to gain the skills and training they need to work and to exercise control over their sexual and reproductive health. They are at risk of being married before the age of 18. They are at risk of violence and harassment from men and boys in every space they occupy, including their home, their school, their refugee camp and their city.
The UK government is committed to provide water supply and sanitation facilities to 60 million people by the end of 2020. The South Asia WASH Results Programme (SAWRP II) is one of numerous approaches for DFID to reach these targets. SAWRP II is a payment by results contract awarded to Plan International worth up to almost £13.5 million by DFID. The project will be implemented in partnership with WaterAid Bangladesh and Plan International Bangladesh from June 2017 to March 2021 with the output phase ending in June 2019 and the subsequent Outcome phase ending in March 2021. In addition WEDC (Water, Engineering and Development Centre, Loughborough University) act as the programme’s learning and research advisors while Ipsos Mori have been contracted to conduct the Outcome phase surveys. The programme results are verified by e-Pact, the external verifiers who report into DFID.
The main objective SAWRP II is to promote and enable the sustained use of hygienic household toilets, and the practice of hand washing with soap by 1,369,31 men, women and children in poor rural communities. PbR means that Plan International only gets paid for what has been delivered and externally verified. The programme is divided into an output phase aiming to reach beneficiaries by June 2019 and an outcome phase July 2019 – Mar 2021 aiming to sustain the use of water and sanitation facilities and maintain positive hygiene behaviour.
